All Geared up flower tutorial

I was asked some time ago now to do a step by step tutorial how I made my
flowers, leaves and cogs from the All Geared up collection 
from Heartfelt Creations. So here we are !!! 

Heartfelt Design Team

First of all the Leaves, to make these you will need:
Copper 3D Stamp paint
HCD 754 All Geared up Die (leaf)

other items:
Metallic inks and finger daubers
Spray and Sparkle Iridescent
White card

Using a light green metallic ink Colour the leaf die cut.


Using a dark green metallic ink colour the edges of the leaf.


Using your finger apply a metallic blue ink onto the leaf in places but not all over it.


Apply the copper 3D paint randomly over the leaf.

The last stage of making the leaf is to
Spray with the Spray and Sparkle. This will give the leaf a lovely sheen.
Curl to give dimention.

Next the Cogs..............
To make these you will need the following:
119390436 3D copper paint
119390536 3D Walnut paint
HCD 754 All Geared up Die (cog die)

other items:
Weathered Wood Distress ink and dauber
white card, screw brads

Using the Weathered Wood ink randomly apply it
over the Cog die cut but not covering it completely. 

Using the copper 3D paint apply to the white areas left on the cog.

The last step is to use the Walnut 3D Paint apply to the edges of the cog
and to small areas of the cog so there is a mixed colour look.

Last but not least the flowers !
To make these I used:
HCD 754 All Geared up Die (large and small flower)
119390436 Copper 3D Stamp paint

other items:
Faded Jeans and Weathered Wood Distress Ink and daubers
Spray bottle, White card, shaping tool.

Using the Weathered Wood ink colour the flower die cuts.

Using the Faded Jeans ink apply randomly over the flower.

Still using the Faded Jeans ink colour the edges of the flowers.

Using a spray bottle add water to some 3D paint and mix together.
Spray over the flowers to look like rust spots !

When the flower is dry curl the edges over a shaping tool.

Shape the edges of the flowers.

Cover the tops of the screw brads with the copper 3D stamp paint.

Layer the smaller flower over the larger one and secure with the brad.

All your pieces are now complete to create your Geared up projects !

Hope you have fun with this collection !!
I sure have I LOVED getting inky !!

Happy crafting.
