DT post for OSAAT Challenge #165 'Mega Challenge' theme 'Make it Stitchy'

Sorry I am a little late posting this as I forgot to schedule and we have been out for the day, I am going to post a photo of the boys on the beach to prove we actually do get some sun here in Bude, Cornwall(England)  Not often I must admit, but today was a SUNNY day!!
So on with the main post!!

Don't forget we still have a sale on at the stitchy bear digi outlet! 

and here are some of the prizes you can win!!

Welcome to our mega challenge at OSAAT this week and we have some gorgeous things for you to win this time and a lot of them have been made by one of the team members personally!

The Theme is make it Stitchy so you MUST use a Stitchy bear item on your project to be eligible to win.

Here is my card
I have used a cogs and sprockest embossing folder and distressed the look with Tim Holtz Distress inks, then added spellbinders and xcut and even tim holtz die cut cogs.  I have heat embossed the darker cogs with bronze embossing powder and inked the lighter ones, They have then been attached with brads

Side/inside view

Closed up of cog!

This gorgeous image is called 'Steampunk profile' by Alipeeps art and has been coloured with pro markers and a gold pen!

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by

This is so gorgeous! I love all the cogs and the embossing folder you used. Looks like you all had a fabulous time at the beach. I haven't done that in years.

I hope to see more of your works. Hugs, Robin
