Love-ly Cogs

Hi Everyone
Sue Here

Over at J & C Creations today I have used the sticky back craft metal and run it through a Tim Holtz cog's embossing folder.  I have then added some black acrylic paint over the top then quickly took this off in different places to give a 'pitted look.'  I have then die cut some Sizzix Tim Holtz cogs in the same craft metal and again used acrylic paint to faux antique them.  I then glued some metal flower charms onto some of the background cogs.

Take a piece of white cardstock and stamp a background alphabet/script onto it.  Tear top and bottom edges and use on main script and edges  London Fog memento ink .

Take a piece of script ribbon from the Vintage ribbons and glue to the cardstock.  Over this add a piece of wire (I used a strip from chicken wire).
Next stamp out on the craft metal a strip of pens (These are Tim Holtz) Use an embossing tool to draw around the pens then turn the metal over and with a bigger ball tool  push the images out.  So this will not dent use some filler purchased from B & Q and fill the pushed out area a the back this raises the pens out at the front.  Once dried stick all embellishments to the front of the card.    

Finish off with a saying or word.  I chose LOVE from my stash.

 Hope these metal magic projects have given you some inspiration this week.  Take care....Sue
