Colourful at TioT's

The new challenge theme over at
We are asking you to use colour with hardly any or no white area.
There are fantastic examples from the team, please pop over to take a look.

To help myself with this challenge I decided to use kraft card base.
It was easy to add a bit of colour through a stencil.
I had a new Steampunk cat stamp that needed to be inked.
Stamped onto white card, then fussy cut and coloured.
The die cut cogs were cut from a piece of dark  packaging,
I smeared them with some gilding wax and stopped as i thought they looked quite rusty at this stage.

So I have a card made in advance for a fun loving male family friend.
I just wish a fairy would wave a wand and make me some Christmas cards.

Thank you for calling in today, your comments are always appreciated.
