Geared Up Garage is a set I wouldn't normally consider, there being an absence of petrol heads in my family but the super DSP and die cut cogs just got to me. And once I had it my hands... so many things to try.
So this card not only uses new gear but also a new-ish technique. I've ink smooshed before but I've always used window sheet, which is quite rigid. I've read about people who use plastic bags or similar to do the smooshing so I gave that a try for this card. It works well and has a slightly different effect. It's less controlled and more fluid with a more malleable applicator.
After the Mango Melody smooshing was dry, I stamped the car in Tuxedo Black and added in some oil stains in Basic Grey.
A bit of washi tape and a sentiment - done. Simple but effective.
