My friend Pam and I added our own twist of challenges.
She picked masculine and burlap and, I picked metal and heat embossing.
I ended up dry embossing and then heat embossing on the clock. I used gray cardstock that I cut out and dry embossed, then I took versamark and went over the surface and used "Watering Can" heat embossing powder.
The vertical panels were dry embossed using a gears folder. I took black ink and silver and went over the tops.
The inside of my easel card shows more heat embossing. I heat embossed MFP set GEARS TO YOU.
