Its time for another exciting challenge at Passion for ProMarkers, and this week, our talented Nat has chosen the theme: Make a Kinetic Card!  Be sure to also check out the incredible inspiration the rest of the design team have created for you!

Here's my creation for the week:

I saw a great shed-type card on Pinterest some time ago, which I wanted to try, and I thought it would perfectly match one of the Paper Shelter stamps, called Motorcycle Mechanic, which I have coloured with ProMarkers.  I added a gear and a silver brad to the motorcycle.

To make the actual card, I used papers from the DCWV Good Wood stack, and docrafts Mr Smith's Workshop, as well as a sheet of corrugated foil.  I added tiny little brads from the Mr Smith's Workshop collection to the shed doors, and a door handle from Prima's Tiny Junkyard Findings collection.  Inside the shed, I added water pipe parts from Prima's Junkyard Findings collection, a lightbulb from Ribtex, a toolbox, hammer and spanner brads from Eyelet Outlet, and tools hanging from a shelf, from the Mr Smith's Workshop collection.  The actual shelf was cut from a small kebab stick.

And now onto the 'moving parts' of my card...

I have used 3 little Tim Holtz gears with a tiny brad through the centre of each to hold it in place, but still allowing it to spin around the brad.  They have been placed with their teeth interlocking.  I have then glued a spanner to one of the brads, so that when you twirl the spanner, all 3 gears rotate against each other.

I had a lot of fun making this card, and I can't wait to see what you come up with this week!  All Dressed Up is offering our lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice this week, so be sure to enter the challenge!
