I wanted to enter the lovely challenge over at MOO MANIA...their theme this time round is "Metal"
( the image is actually a "Moo")
I also found a challenge over at ECLECTIC ELLAPU...they have 2 themes going on, so the one I am entering my peg in to is the "Texture" themed one.
( Click to enlarge image...the sheen shows up better )
I used gilding wax to colour the under sides and sides of the peg. I found some clock & cogs embossed card my friend had given me sometime ago, so I sprayed that with Artiste Spritzing inks, they have a fantastic sheen,unfortunately the light being so poor today it dosen't show up to well. I did try a couple of photos with the flash option,but I just got a glare on the sheen.
I then adhered the embossed card to the front and back of the peg. I stamped the Paperartsy image on to some spare card that I had lightly shaded with distress ink...then just added some colour with a damp brush directly off the ink pads.
I added the image to the peg, then added the Fernli Design cogs that I had coloured with gilding wax.
Hopefully my peg will qualify for both challenges, Textured & Metal....
