Gears To You &Gear Up

So I did something different to me. I wanted to do one layer cards, meaning just using the stamps and no other embellishments.

For my first card, I did a line masking technique so I can put on my sentiment over my background without needing another piece of card stock.  You can't tell with the picture but I used glossy accents on all the black, I love how this turned out in person!

My second card I did the same using glossy accents. Turned out great. I wanted to use tan cards stock but next time I think I am gonna stick with white.

Hope to see you back for some more projects on these dates:
