A Little Bit of Steampunk!

Hello all,
Just a quick post tonight. I wanted to share with you a card I made for a workshop called 'Shimmer and Shine'. I wanted to show that you can put a bit of glitz into a card for a male. 

The shimmer was added by using the yummy Graphite Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels to create some of the cogs and the shine was created with silver pearl card for the rest of the cogs.

Materials Used:
DP's: Craft Creations and Coredinations
Embossing Folders: Steampunk by Tim Holtz
Stamps: Clocks and Sentiment by Hero Arts
Dies: Sprockets by Spellbinders, Cogs 'On The Edge' by Tim Holtz
Everything was distressed with Black Soot DI.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Crafty Catz - #95 'Emboss It'
Totally Gorjuss - #93 'Round and Round'
Charisma Cardz - #32 'Distressing'
Craft Your Days Away - #26 'Birthday Celebrations'
Simply Create - #50 'Time to Distress'

A Little Touch of Pink

Hello! I thought it was about time I shared with you some new projects. I think if I remember rightly the inspiration for this came from a project by the very talented Kath in her cubbyhole. I love this stamp from Hero Arts and have used it so much.

Quite clean and simple from me but it's fun to experiment although still not 100% sure if this ticks all the boxes for me.
