I did some embossing on a few of the gears. After I decided to have the embossing a little more prominent (and didn't want to do ink of this layout) so I carefully sanded the embossed areas. I also used a couple different thicknesses of adhesive foam. For sure click on the photos if you want a better look but the dimension in this layout is just great (IRL!)
And a hidden tag! See the red gear behind the photo? I welded a gear onto a square after measuring the space I had for the tag. I created a shadow and another layer in white to write on and then another layer for the red gear...
I embossed the main body of this guy! Oh man, are these guys cute! To create a little more interest I added a layer of Glossy Accents over the entire eye...and AFTER glittering the dial on his chest, I also covered that with Glossy Accents!
I also wanted to mention how to kinda alter your die cuts...I really wanted this guy to be waving hello, and to have a leg stepping up onto the gears on the bottom.
With your design software, you will want to add all the layers together so you can see the finish image. Using a knife tool then you can cut off (trim off) the area to don't want or want to move. Once that is done, you move to where you want it and weld back together! Very easy to do!
And same thing here...thick chunky glitter on the light bulb "ears" covered in Glossy Accents. You can do glitter alone of course but the look with GA on top is just too cool!
Here, I just simply cut off the arms (sorry guy!) and moved them so that he too could be saying Hi! =)
