This card is for the Hero Arts April challenge, I used one of the sketches. The alphabet pattern was clear embossed on watercolour paper. The paper was cut into four panels and each panel was coloured with Distress Stains (Broken China, Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade) and then misted with Perfect Pearls and water.
Four gears were cut from grungeboard, painted white and stamped with a text stamp using Archival Ink. Then the gears were painted with Distress crackle paint Rock Candy. After they dried, a bit of Mustard Seed Distress Stain was added to the cracks. TFL!
