Week 19 - Craft Barn Alpha Challenge

Just skidding into this weeks Alpha Challenge by the seat of my pants with my entry for the letter G. Not just one previously uninked stamp from my collection on this atc but two! The background is wrinkle-free distress technique and the gear had all sorts put on it before I reached the stage I was happy with. Basically it's some Distress embossing powder to give it a slightly rough feel painted over with  black acrylic ink before applying a couple of coats of Metallic Glaze.

A very original interpretation of the letter G. A really clever card and very suitable for a man's birthday.
