My April DT Reveal for 2Crafty Chipboard
"You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Grey"

Hello there lovelies, thank for stopping by the blog.
Today I have a layout I did as part of my April DT work for 
2Crafty Chipboard & it features my gorgeous grandson Henry.
He has the face of an angel although sometimes he sure doesn't act like one !!

 2Crafty Chipboard used...
Title - "You Make Me Happy"
Steampunk Gears - Small
Steampunk Gears - Medium
Giant Gears & Cogs
2016 Dates

I started off with this fabulous 2Crafty "title" that I heat embossed in this gorgeous
 Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powder - Queen of Sheba Silver.
Perfect to achieve a metal look.

I also heat embossed, in the same colour, both the
"2016" date & the little "Geotag" above it.

I wanted the whole layout to be very monochromatice look so I have kept it in
 these metal tones.  For ALL the different sized "Gears & Cogs" 
I treated them all in the same way..
                               #1.   I inked them all in black ink.
                               #2.   Then I blobbed on some embossing ink with a dauber.
                               #3.   Then I sprinkled on some more of the same embossing powder.
                               #4.   Then I simply heat embossed them to achieve a realistic metal look.

I have used a Lindy's Stamp Gang "Black Orchid Silver "spray for my background.
Love this colour. It is a sort of a silver colour with fabulous pinkish brown undertones.

I have a few of these ".com" metal embellishments in my stash & I have been
 dying to use them, so I teamed it with the little light globe that says "cute",
& I have.... "", love love love it !! 

Well thats all from me today.

Until next time.

If you like my layout I would love you to leave a 
comment as I truly LOVE hearing your feedback.
