In Gear

Second post of the day with my finally finished card for the current Ready, Steady, Stamp challenge. I have to admit I had a real struggle with this one as it's racing themed and that's not something the men in my family like that much so I was a bit stuck for ingredients.
Here's the recipe:
And here's my card:
I made a stripy background paper using Distress inks in Barn Door and Mustard Seed and 2 stamps - Anita's Distressed Stripes and Hampton Art Scratch Pattern 2635. I inked over the scratch pattern with the yellow ink.
I stamped the car - Inkadinkado 91406X - in black on mount board and embossed it with clear UTEE. I inked round the edges with permanent black. I inked some of Maya Road's chipboard gears with Black Soot Distress ink.
I made a small journalling panel with a Paper Artsy script stamp and inked it with the red and yellow inks. My Polka Doodles Not For Girls CD came to the rescue with some car themed background paper and I assembled the card as you see after inking the edges of the pieces with black.
