Inspiration card for Chalk N Stock

Well it is inspiration day for me at chalk n stock and here is my inspiration for you today!

All shading and colouring and distressing on this card has been done using CHALKS!!  Yes that's right, so easy and so quick!!  I Embossed the cogs background onto white card and then used 2 shades of brown chalk to give it a distressed look by rubbing it on with cotton wool.  I then backed the piece with brown card. The bronze metal flowers and clock charm are from my stash and the mini gems are also from my stash

Close up of the image, I have used a gold pen for the metallic look of the earing, arm band and wing.
