It's All About Numbers


     This fortnights challenge at The Male Room is all about letters or numbers. Create something masculine that includes either of these and you can come and join us.
     I started with a piece of chocolate pearl card, then I embossed it with a Spellbinder folder. To colour it I have used Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Waxes in Chic Pumpkin, Teal, Spring Green and Autumn Bronze.
     The cogs are die cut using a Spellbinder die set borrowed from a friend, these cogs are cut in thin greyboard. They have also been coloured using the same waxes but with the emphasis on Pumpkin to make them look rusty. The smallest cog has a screw top brad through it. All the cogs are stuck on with Cosmic Shimmer PVA, it really is strong stuff.
   
     The locomotive plate at the top is a Creative Expressions stamp from the Vintage Inventor set, stamped in Archival black and embossed in clear. I wanted this to look like brass so it has been coloured with Golden Light Gilding Wax. This is mounted on foam pads.
     The ticket is also a Creative expressions stamp from a set called Celebration Tickets. This is stamped on Kraft in Archival Ink Coffee and embossed in clear, it is also mounted on foam pads.
     The coloured panel is stuck on to a Kraft card blank using red line tape, I used the extra strong tape just in case any wax got on the back of the panel, I don't want it to drop off later.
     Please come and join us at The Male Room, we have two new DT members to give you extra inspiration.
