Using gears

The Darice Steam Punk embossing ( a new item for me)  has been inked with Walnut stain, using a make up sponge.  The die cut circles are a recycled piece - the corrugated heavy paper was between two glass custard cups I got at Dollar Tree.  I saved them as I knew I would find a way to use them.  I also sponged the edges.  Other supplies:  Cuttlebug Thank You from Olivia alpha die set; plastic clips; recycled bit of ribbon - not sure where it came from!  The over all look is Tim Holtz inspired.  I wanted to have a masculine card - it is a bit dark, and I used the black just for contrast on the photo.

Great card! I love the texture and the fact that it could be sent to a man! Masculine cards are always a struggle for me :) Thanks for playing along at DRS Designs!
