Bloody thing took about 3hrs to do but there's a lot of shrink film involved. All of the gears were cut from shrink film on my Big Shot, colored (I tried Sharpies, craft ink and colored pencils- the blue were done with colored pencils (my Brilliant Blue Craft Spot is more of a Night of Navy!!) and the red is craft ink. The title is done from rub ons on a transparency and I colored the white "MOVER!!" yellow with a Sharpie. I wanted to put gears subtley on the blue paper so I cut some Cricut stamp "film" and mounting foam with the same die on my Big Shot and voila, now I have gear stamps.
Paper: SU: Brilliant Blue, Real Red, Yoyo Yellow

Scrapbooker's Paradise #15: Use 3 OLD things: I won't admit to how long the shrink film has been in my stuff unused. I'd say I found it at Michaels about 6 yrs ago and HAD to have it. I opened the pkg. last night. The Cricut stamp material was given to me with the Cricut as a birthday gift 2yrs ago. I opened it last night for the first time. The colored pencils I used have been used a bit over the years but I use watercolor pencils a LOT more and I got these pencils back in college if I recall... they may actually go back to high school. Ouch.

DCWV/May Arts: I kinda blew it on this one... maybe. Since my laptop is still a dead thing, I now check out challenges in the basement, copy the sketches and challenges I want to try out onto paper or just copy the sketches onto a single image and print them out on one page, then run up to the 2nd floor to do the work. That means I sometimes miss details about WHOSE sketch I'm doing. So I LOVED the sketch for these photos, got it done, and then realized I had no idea whose it was. I'd given up on it when I was cleaning out my Reader docs tonight and stumbled on it. Of course, it means that I have piece for DCWV/May Arts with none of their products on it. However, I don't see that as a requirement and I really like the layout so I'll send it in anyway. What's the worst that can happen- they say "thanks but no?" I think I can survive that.
