Get in Gear

I saw this sentiment on SC and thought it would be perfect with the new Tim Holtz dies that I bought a while back.  The gear is painted with Distress crackle paint, fired brick.  I haven't tried the crackle paint before and wanted to give a try.  It is hard to see but for the gear I used grunge paper and it does have cracks that makes it look old.  The clock is Sense of Time from Stampin up.  Love this set!  I have used it before for a masculine birthday card. Tim Holtz metal gears are used for some embellishments and the  background is Tim Holtz brick wall. Sometimes pictures just don't do a card justice.  The inside of the card says "Happy Birthday" 


  1. I like it! I love all the gears you used. I have some of those and have never quite figured out how to use them. Nice job!

  2. Ohh...Rochelle, I love this card. The clock face is wicked cool. Using Tim Holtz techniques is so much fun. Love the card...
