Guest Design - Mixed Media World - Get in Gear

Hi everyone - today I am guest designer over at Mixed Media World. Their theme this month is Get in Gear so I decided to make a masculine birthday card. 

My base is embossed card stock with distress crayons - just added in various places and smudged with my fingers.
I took some corrugated card and dry brushed gesso over it. I tore it to create a little frame before adding some tarnished brass distress spray. The letters were die cut and coloured in a similar way.
I added a die cut cog that was on my desk and metal embellishment for the 'O'. I mounted it on a kraft base and card.

I would like to enter - Frilly and Funkie - Boy oh Boy

See you next time!


  1. The crayons look really cool over the embossing - something I'll definitely try when I get back to my craft desk - thanks for the inspiration. Love how the blue greens glow between the grungy corrugated panels - great card!
