As You See It 195 - Design Team Card

This week at As You See It Challenge, we have a sketch for you.

I still can't believe how much I've enjoyed the Geared Up Garage suite. It's offered so many possibilities and here's another one. The DSP is fabulous and taps into some rich colours. I've pulled out the Real Red to use as a the front base. To give it some texture, I've run it through the Subtle dynamic textured embossing folder and stamped in some distressed nuts to represent the sequins in the sketch.

For the smaller rectangle in the sketch, I've used a die cut of cogs in black. To give it some texture, I've added some black heat embossing. Before heating the powder, I scumbled it up so that the embossing would be a combination of shiny, patchy and a bit lumpy - kind of like pitted metal.

The sentiment is embossed in black and the cog that represents the star of the sketch has an under-layer of silver foil patchily embossed in black.

We'd love to see how you see this sketch, so pop over to the challenge site to see what the rest of the team have done and join in with us. You can play along with us until Wednesday 13 March.
