Hello, hello, hello!
How are you lovely ladies today? I hope you're doing well.
My fingers are slowly healing up -- I've taken the bandages off one, but the other is going to take a little longer. I probably should have had stitches, and I'll have a nice scar when all's said and done. It's funny how that isnt' such a big deal at this stage in life.
The images are from Stampendous. It's a build-a-robot set with an assortment of heads, bodies, arms and legs, and even a dog and a cat. Very versatile and great for cards for little boys. I built my 'bot and his little pal, then colored them in with copic markers.
The ciaos shown are R27 and G03.
To assemble the card I folded white GP cardstock to the standard size, then covered it with a gear print from The Paper Studio. I took another piece of cardstock and stamped the Hero Arts cloud background with Colorbox Fluid Chalk ink in Lime Pastel. Rounded the corners with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, and mounted it with dimensional adhesive.
I realized at this point that the patterns were too busy together,
so I attempted to break it up a little by coloring a strip of white cardstock with an orange copic, trimming it into thin strips, and layering them between the two pieces. To continue the stitch marks on the gear paper, I added stitching lines to the orange strips with a white gel pen.
To give my robots ground to stand on, I stuck on a strip of artist tape from 7 Gypsies across the bottom of the clouds piece. Love that stuff! I wrote out "happy birthday, humanoid!" in as "robotic" a handwriting as I could manage and drew a speach bubble around it. I trimmed out my images and sentiment and adhered them with more dimensionals. Rounded the corners to echo the clouds.
And that's that! I'm really hoping to get into my craft room soon. I'm getting itchy fingers! Lol. Need to get busy crafting. But before that, I really need to get to bed. Morning will come all too soon. Have a great night, everybody!
