gear it up .....

This is my design team card for
and the theme this month is
The Guys Have it 

For my card, I started with a kraft cs front panel.  I cut a piece of stripped paper in earth tones that I had in my scrap for the bottom portion.  I then cut a variety of gears with my circut with the 'Accent Essentials' cartridge out of blue and kraft cs.    I punched a 2 inch circle and stamped the 'fun times' with a Hampton Arts rubber stamp in Walnut Stain distress ink and clear embossing powder to give it shine.  I then edged the circle with the distress ink as well.
For the rest of the pieces, I totally covered the gears with Versa Mark and then covered the pieces entirely with clear embossing powder which gives them a plastic look.
The sentiment was printed on blue cs with walnut distress ink and a Tim Holtz stamp.

All of this was set on a kraft top fold  cs base with a couple of drops of robin's egg blue Neuvo drops.
Thanks for playing along with us this month.
Lets see all those guy cards ....
