January 2017 AO New Release!

We are sailing the High Seas with "The Captain" and all the AO crew mates with January's new release for 2017! Follow along the blog hop for a chance to win and all the details are below!
We have stamps, papers and dies oh my! The Captain, Vagabond Treasure Paper and Steampunk Gears die set will get you in the mood for some ocean fun!
This card started with a "Vagabond Treasure Paper" layer, a black piece of cardstock in which the "Steampunk Gears Die Set" was used to cut out the shapes. The gears were lightly inked over with Opalite Golden Mist and placed in random order of the die cut outs, the wrinkled black paper was also highlighted here and there and then flattened out. The young boy was fussy cut and colored with Salty Ocean and Antique Linen. The sentiment was cut apart and inked with Ground Espresso and some Salty Ocean splats. 
For the tag using "The Captain" all images were stamped on the Vagabond Treasures Paper, cut and backed. The black tag was bleached stamped to add a little interest.

Wow, such a great vintage masculine look here, Terry - brilliant use of those new designs. I love the grungy industrial look of the cogs, and the framed elements on the nautical tag.
