Connie-Metal Mama

Today I got to play with this awesome stamp by Sweet Pea Stamps 
Artist Meredith Dillman
from plate #87
She is so kool isn't she?
Of course I immediately wanted to surround her with 
metal and gears and sprockets.....


Sweet Pea Stamps plate #87
Copic markers
Spellbinders die "Sprightly Sprockets"
Cuttlebug embossing folder "Clock Works"
copper leafing pen
Distress ink "Weathered Wood" by Ranger

I ran the Distress pad lightly over the embossed paper
to bring out the design and
cut the gears from copper cardstock.

Lynette has a great sale ongoing now so run over to

and check it out!!
