It's nearly here!

Hi everyone, I hope all is well with you wherever you are!
Life has been pretty hectic here of late so I needed some quick and easy card techniques for Father's Day which is this Sunday here in Australia.

This one uses the new Tim Holtz 3d mechanical embossing folder, so much depth and texture! 
My heaviest cardstock is a white 300 gsm, so once I embossed the diecut tag, I coated it in some black gesso.

Next I used some inka gold in silver and art alchemy aged brass wax to colour the cogs using my finger! I added a couple of Memory Box diecut cogs in black, and finished with a sentiment sticker.

I'm linking up to these challenges:
At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday, it's anything goes.

Happy Little Stampers CAS has a diecuts theme.

Wow, you created an amazing metal cog card, Cathy! The cogs look realistic. The silver and brass wax over the black gesso and the 3D embossing effect are fantastic! Adding the black die-cut cogs makes a big difference. I'm sure your dad will love this card! Hideko xx
