Welcome to my creative space.
Happy Valentine's Day my dear friends!!
Today I'm sharing this grungy, masculine card I created for my dear husband.
Scroll down to see how I put it all together.
Tips and Techniques
I cut this Geo Heart Frame from metallic cardstock using the new Tim Holtz Geo Frames die set. The love sentiment is cut from black cardstock using his Script die set. I lightly brushed the sentiment with finnabair waxes to give a rusty effect.
Tim's Sprocket Gears, Story Stick and Hardware Head. All of the metal pieces are rubbed with Finnabair waxes to give a rusty effect.
Here's a cluster of Tim's Mini Gears.
I diecut one of Tim's Geo Insect's and lightly brushed them with Finnabair's waxes. I trimmed them apart and tucked them in to give the heart a set of wings.
Don't you just adore the Abandoned paper pack? I'm so happy it is now a part of Tim's regular line with Idea-ology! This piece had just the perfect colors to create a rusty, grungy Valentine. I stamped the background with this clock from Tim's Inventor 1 rubber stamp set. My husband is an engineer and was immediately drawn to this image when he saw the card. After stamping the card, I added the black border and then stitched around the edges on my sewing machine with black thread. Then the other elements were adhered.
