Gears and Flowers

Good Day to You!!!  This was a fun card to make and I've been told that the birthday girl that received it really like it.  

In the background is cardstock embossed using the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Steampunk texture fade.  The piece was then colored with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse using a Nuvo brush and a few metal type colors.  Next I brushed a glaze over the whole panel, let it sit a bit and then wiped it back using a baby wipe.  Isn't it great!!!!  The words "Enjoy the Journey" (Idea-ology metal piece) was colored using a Distress Crayon.  It is set upon some strips of Washi tape.  The thread is Tim Holtz Craft Thread.  I really like the weight of his craft thread for things like this.  Now for the flowers (Sizzix Tim Holtz Wildflowers).  These were die cut from Mixed Media Card and then used as a mask while making prints doing the shaving cream, marbling technique.  Under the main layer of the card is a white cardstock layer (edges distressed), then Tim's Gold Metallic Kraft-Core (edges distressed), then a folded purple card.
