Going Around in Gears card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Going Around in Circles".

For this challenge, I thought of gears, these are round and go round, and the 3D Mechanics Embossing Folder is really perfect for this. Because I'm working with Nuvo Powders, I like to use Clear Gesso as a primer. After the gesso was dry, I started adding layers with the Nuvo Powders, Atlantis Burst and Green Parade. And to add more color and depth I also used Infusions A Bit Jaded.


To make the gears stand out a little extra, I used a few gears from the Gearhead die set and gave it a metallic look with Bronze Age and Peacock Metallique Wax. I fastened them with Fasteners.




To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.

Well, I see you got addicted to the Nuvo Shimmers and the oposite corners coloring :-) I still need to try them out, the shimmers and the corners technique cause I love them both. It was so cool to watch how you built the colors with several shades of blue and green. Great result!
