PPRS Monday Inspiration

Hi there Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps fans, hope everyone had a great weekend.  For today's inspiration I have this card I made featuring some of the images from the "Gears" clear stamp set and the "Find Out What You Seek" sentiment. I used a Cuttlebug folder to emboss the piece of red patterned paper and slightly inked the embossed areas and edges with distress ink.  The gray blocks were originally a metallic silver color, I used some Walnut ink and walnut stain distress ink to age the silver color and this is the final result.
I cut and stamped all the gears with black ink on red patterned paper and layered them with pop dots, as a final touch I added some gold metallic brads.
Here is another closeup of the layered gears.
For the layout of the card I used this sketch from Mojo Monday as my inspiration.
Thank you so much for stopping by, and hope to see you back soon.
