Sketches - gone astray

Isn't it amazing how you start with a sketch and it takes it's own twists and turns - but that is ok - at least you had a starting point. The sketch is from 2 Sketches 4 U. It has lots of the same design but then the gears had their own creative ideas.

One of my boss's is retiring - great boss - so I am planning a retirement card a week for him - starting soon - I have the first one started - just need to finish the inside - Gearing Up For Retirement. He loves his tools, duct tape, and WD40.

Paper - Kaiser Scrapbooking
Chipboard gears - Maya Road spray painted with silver Krylon Paint - color did not pick up well
Sentiment - computer generated.
Strip of chipboard covered with duct tape

Stay tuned for the remainder of the month for more masculine retirement cards.
