You make the earth move - Scrap Africa Sept 1st sketch challenge

A new sketch challenge at Scrap Africa, with a wonderful sketch by talented Denise. the sketch was very romantic, but I used it for an earthly page, with photos of my boys at Makhtesh Ramon Visitors Center. the boys were fascinated by the geoligical exhibition, and tried every single part of it. they loved to see how they can 'move' the earth.
Here's my take on the sketch:
For this lo, I used my August counterfeit kit, and TCW stencil with modeling paste, that I colored with some Perfect Pearls powder. I also worked with distress inks and mists over the chipboard gears, die cuts with the TH Sizzix Gadget Gears die. I added a flair and a chalkboard tab from StudioFourteen40. the background paper is from Crate Paper 'The Pier' collection.
Here are some close-ups on the details:

I was also inspired by the sketch, by the theme and by the colors I worked with, so I made a masculine birthday card:

Thank you for visiting my blog and for taking the time to leave me such lovely comments. I appreciate that very much!
