Big cogs, little cogs


I ran the background card through the steampunk texture fade folder.  Using the new mini cogs I cut out the shapes in the background card.  I cut 2 more out of cardboard, coloured them with walnut stain and vintage photo stain and placed them in the holes.  Swooshed across the background with wild honey, tea dye, walnut stain and frayed burlap distress inks, together with antique linen stain.  I distressed the edges and inked with walnut stain.  I cut a larger piece of chipboard like card and used walnut stain distress stain to colour the edges.  The quote is from t!ms mini stamp set and I used a spellbinder nestie to shape it and inked it with tea dye distress ink.
