More Cogs

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog.
I'm back to show another card that I made with inspiration from scrapbooking sites.  This one is a masculine card but, again, I haven't decided on who to give it to, or  even on the greeting I'm going to use.  
The front of the card is a square of black cardstock and  I used my little machine to sew around the edge.  After I finished embellishing it I mounted it on a deep grey card.
The papers are a mix of Prima Craftsman and Kaisercraft Attitude.  I distressed the edges with my Tim Holz distressing tool after I lightly edged them with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  I left the edges raw because I liked the 'grungy' look.
Here is a close-up of the Imaginarium cogs in the corner.
 I painted the cogs with a black paint dabber and then went over them with Versa Color Silver and Bronze to give them an aged look.
This chipboard piece is from Twiddlybits and I've painted it the same as the other cogs.
I used a chicken wire Template and dabbed over it with a Paint Dabber in Almond.  
This little patch was actually supposed to be in the opposite corner, but I found that the small cogs didn't stand out very well against the paint colour so I simply turned the card around.
 Here is another close-up of the chipboard piece.

Once I decide who to give this card to I'll sort out what the greeting is going to be.

And another one bites the dust!! LOL
Thank you so much for visiting.
Once I've sorted the photos from my holidays I'll do a post about it.  I have to say, New Zealand is a very, very pretty country, and we are definitely going back again to have another look.
Have a lovely day and please take care.
God Bless.
