Sunday Stampers - Week 210 - This Boy

This is a bit of a 'quirky' entry for this week's Sunday Stampers challenge from Hels.  With a 'male' theme (for Father's Day) I decided to try a technique we used at Sunday's 'Birds in the Barn' workshop with Linda Elbourne. 
I started by inking up a square piece of paper with peeled paint Distress Stain & allowed to dry. I have to say that it looked a mess but carried on regardless!! Using a 'Special Touch of Mica' small polka dot mask I inked through it with walnut stain then randomly stamped a PaperArtsy script stamp in Adirondack denim.  I stamped some PaperArtsy cogs in gold paint dabber & a 7gypsies clock in brown ink & ruler in black ink.  The birds (PaperArtsy) were stamped once on the card then again onto white card, inked with antique linen then cut out & placed on top of the original stamp with pinflair glue for dimension. I added some gold metallic ink to the four corners of the card & Adirondack Dimensional Pearls in Espresso to the cog centres & the crowns. Instead of stamping a sentiment (as the card is quite wacky/steam punk) I added a 'We R Memory Keepers' metal embellishment which says 'Imagine, Create, Dream'. Happy Crafting everyone...Sx
