Metal work

Good morning

Well after six lazy weeks holiday it is back to work for me today. A gentle easing into this working lark with a training day - must try and stay awake!! 
Today's card was made for a male friend's birthday and I cannot take the credit for the design - I found inspiration on the Pinterest website www.ihaveinkyfingers.blogspot.it.
Ingredients - 

  • matt black card and kraft card from Crafter's Companion
  • craft metal
  • canvas embossing folder from Textures range from Crafter's Companion
  • Spellbinder's creative cogs embossing folder
  • black soot distress ink
  • Spellbinder's sentiments 3 die

I sanded the craft metal a little and rubbed some inks over it to distress it slightly.
The sentiment
A close up of the embossing detail.

Thank you for stopping by 


PS. I just realised that it is the 1st Spetember today - where is the year going?


  1. I think we waited so long for Summer Lesley that suddenly it's almost Autumn and we missed a season.

    Great masculine card today.
