Father’s Day Shifting Gears

By Taheerah | 16th June 2013 | 2 Comments

Hey everyone! I hope you’re having a great weekend!

With it being Father’s Day I thought I’d share a card I made for Gel-à-Tins using the Shifting Gears set!

I went for a CAS-meets-grunge effect and came up with this:

Perfect for an engineer or geek dad huh?!

I started with a Sterling Silver card base and stamped the gears using Versamark ink before embossing them  using WOW! Metallic Brass embossing powder. Then I tried something new – sprinkled embossing! I dipped a wide, flat, soft brush into my embossing powder and tapped it above the card base to sprinkle on the powder before heating it. Love how this turned out!

To finish up the design I rubbed my Pressed Greige Linen and I Steel Got It inkpads over the card to ‘dirty’ it up a little, then embossed a Father’s Day sentiment from PTI’s World’s Greatest Dad set – and that’s all there is to it!

Well I do hope you’re getting a chance to do some of what you love this weekend! I’m about to start a new job tomorrow – exciting times! I do hope you’ll leave some love for this card before you head on your way. And you simply *must* come back here tomorrow – the Lil’ Inker Designs Release is starting and you will not want to miss it!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
