Male Birthday cards

Good Morning..

Today im sharing 2 male cards i made, once again i used alcohol inks on silver mirror card, its a nightmare to take decent photo of it though.  The finished effect is brilliant.

6x5.5" white cardblank.  I then embossed a piece of silver mirror card and used purple, blue & green shades of alcohol ink on a blending pad to colour it.  I then cut it into 3 panels and mounted onto grey pearl card and added to the card base.  This embossing folder from spellbinders is actually 5x7" so on cutting up the sections i used the label section to add my sentiment.  

I die cut various cogs from white card and layered up with 'screw tops' die cut from silver mirror card.

This 2nd card is made the same way but mounted on a black 6x5.5" card base instead. 

Close up trying but not really succeeding in showing the colour better! 

Items Used:
Spellbinders Mbossibilities folder - EL-017 Industrial
Spellbinders De-lites 'S2-228 - Nuts & Bolts'
Cheerylynn cog dies
Ranger Tim Holtz Alcohol inks
Birthday sentiment die
