Gears to You

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #194Join us in this week’s challenge combining the colors, Sapphire, Pacifica, Crystal Blue, White Daisy and Black (all and only) until Thursday, May 26, 2016 to create and link up your project. Look forward to seeing your inspirations for this color challenge. We encourage you to use CTMH products; however you may use any products to participate using closest to colors...and still join in the fun.  

This Color Challenge was combined with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #160, and I created a generic male card for any occasion.  

Cut several sprockets using a Spellbinders Die-cut.  Cut a panel of Design Paper and using several of the ink blot flairs randomly stamped with the three blues and then adhered sprockets with 3D Thin Foam Tape to the panel.  

Cut a second panel of design paper and adhered to the Black cardstock and then adhered the sprocket/gears panel to this panel. Found a sprocket/cog border in Cricut Design Space, modified the size and glued.  Created the Sentiment with Text Add in Design Space and used another cog to use as the letter "o" and added an arrow for embellishment.   

On the inside of the card adhered some sprockets in the bottom right-hand corner and leaving space for a personal note.
