Birthday Gear

Hi everyone, I hope you're enjoying your weekend. Mine is about over but I'm on holidays for a couple of weeks and am looking forward to resting up!

I was experimenting with stencils and sprays.
I used  Goosebumps texture spray and a few Hueys Colour mists.
The tag was diecut then the gears cut from the leftover scraps. I added more colour with black soot distress ink and some silver gelatos.

I'm linking up to the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday where the theme is to use mists and a stamp. My sentiment is a clear stamp from Simon Says Stamp.

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday the theme is anything goes.

Using scraps up means I can visit the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop
where there is always lots of fun to be had!

Edited to add: I'm also linking up to the challenge at Uniko Studio
where the theme is anything goes with the optional twist of masculine.
Thanks Anita!

Also the challenge at Happy Little Stampers where it's a sprays/mists theme. I hope this tag is CAS enough. Thanks Loll!

What fantastic texture and dimension, Cathy ... a brilliant masculine card! You could link up at Uniko (I'm guest designing!) ... we have an Anything Goes challenge with an option of masculine ... this would be perfect for it! Anita :)

This is awesome Cathy! Love the silver and black with the gears. And the lime green really adds a punch of colour. This would be great for the HLS June CAS Challenge - Sprays. Loll xx
