Copper Gear CAS Father's Day Cards

I have a busy few weeks up ahead. We are expecting about 25 guests from America to help with our annual English camp in our little town. I have some posts written that I still need to tweak. In light of the busyness of this time of the year, I may not be able to update my blog as regularly as I would like. But I should be back before the month is over! :)

I have a pair of CAS Mixed Media Cards today for Father's Day.  These are mass producible and show that Want2Scrap® bling works well with masculine cards as well. I started with embossing the white panel with Spellbinders’ Bricks and Bar M-Bossabilities, then I swiped it with two shades of brown Distress Inks, and adhered them to black card bases.

I then rubbed some DecoArt Copper Kettle Metallic Lustre on the Want2Scrap Shifting Gears Large Silhouette and cut it in half to use on 2 cards. I intentionally didn’t cover the silhouette completely to show the texture of the paper. I then embellished the round gears with the Nestabling Petite Scalloped Circle Sm Black Rhinestones and Baby Bling Pearls LeCreme pearls.
I added some SRM Stickers on the embossed panel. The sentiment is by Penny Black Hot Rod and stamped using Clearsnap inks.
I adhered the cut gears die cuts using foam squares. Here you can see the layers and many dimensions of the cards, which is made possible by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Runner and foam squares.
I'm entering these to the following challenges: The Pink Elephant (father's day), Crazy for Challenges (masculine), SSS Monday Challenge (use paint); CASE This Sketch; SSS Wed Challenge (masculine).
