Brother-In-Laws Birthday card

     My Brother in laws birthday is next week and he's a hard one to make a card for, but i think that this says a lot about Jeff.   He takes things apart to redo them. This Box car just reminded me of him and especially when i saw the big dog riding along.LOL This is a digital stamp from "Broken Box Stock". I colored this image with my copic markers, added some Gears using my Tim Holtz die and cork board then i had some of the Tim Holtz metal gears that i added. I tried a new technique that i found HERE using Gesso and distress inks for background paper. This is an Awesome Blog called "The Technique Zone" with a lot of different techniques. You really should check it out if you like trying new things.
