challenge 202 from Mark's Finest Papers. I used the Big Boys Toys stamp set and "Happy Birthday" from the Bring on the Sun set. My gears are die cut then splattered (using an old toothbrush) with embossing fluid and heat embossed using Paprika embossing powder and heat gun. I also used embossing fluid around the outside of my truck circle and embossed using vintage copper powder. The background panel is dry embossed coordination paper, aqua Black Magic, so that when I sanded it the aqua shows through. I then embossed the edges with the copper as well. I made my truck look even older by adding a rust pattern on the faded aqua paint. Finally, I splattered embossing fluid on the phillips head screw brads then embossed with paprika powder again. I think this makes the perfect old guy birthday card!!
