Tic Toc

Hurrah ! it's Tuesday and I get to share my latest Queen Kat Designs creation with you. As we are now into a new month, that means there are fabulous new stamps released by QKD and I got to play with 'Wind it Up' by Christina Myers, one of the new artists who's just joined us in the Castle.  I'm showcasing this project over on the Dark Ink Sorority Blog today. 

Spookily, I'd just bought a set of new cogs and wheels dies from Spellbinder, these are just perfect to go with this image. I also got the Cuttlebug cogs embossing folder recently too, so it all came together nicely.

After embossing the base layer, I rubbed a brown ink pad lightly over to emphasise the raised areas. I cut out a selection of the cogs with the dies and attached them.

The image was coloured with Copics and attached to a slightly larger layer cut from Garden Green cardstock from SU! before attaching to the embossed layer. I introduced touches of greeen to lift the whole design and add a focal point.  The square gems were from my stash.

I hope you've enjoyed your visit today, thanks so much for dropping by.

I adore what you have done with this card - what good fortune that you had those spellbinders to go with it!
