DT Project #1 .... It's All About The MDF Man!

Good morning everyone it's great to be back after our festive break .... the design team are raring to go again with this months kit (will certainly get the cogs ticking that's for sure).

This month the DT will be working with the following shapes courtsey of The MDF Man - so we have a free reign this month in terms of creativity. Look forward to seeing the design team members interpretation.

For me their was only one way to go with this .... out & out grunge (sorry folks if that is not your thing).

I started out by using Distress Ink (Antique Linen) on all the cogs, after adding a couple of layers I then inked the edges with Distress Ink (Walnut Stain). The largest of the cogs was then stamped using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Classics #6 in Archival Ink (Sepia). I then applied a second layer of stamping using the "text" stamp from Tim Holtz World Traveller Stamp Set, this time using Archival Ink (Jet Black).

 The small cog at the top was stamped using the large background from Tim Holtz Remnants stamp Set.
I stamped the "face" image (from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Classics #5) onto cardstock and cut to size, the quote is from Tim Holtz World Traveller Stamp Set ....
.... which was cut up into small bits rather than keeping it as one long sentence.

I've used Tim Holtz Ideaology to decorate - Hitch Fasteners, Clock Face & Game Spinner which were coloured using Metallic Distress Stain (Antique Bronze), I've also used an Ideaology key.

I hope you have enjoyed this project, it sure was fun to do .... don't forget to leave a comment here to be in with a chance of winning the random comment prize drawn after Hels week.
