A few weeks ago, I was in Michael's and saw the cutest set of robot stamps which I thought were perfect for boy cards. I just HAD to have them. So, they came home with me. Along with a few sheets of patterned paper to match. So, that's the real reason I made two cards for the same nephew so far in advance. I just wanted to try out my new goodies. Is that so wrong?
This one starts with PTI's Ripe Avocado for the base. I layered a mat of patterned paper on to it to brighten it up a bit. It is after all for a kid. The robot was stamped on white and coloured in with my trusty Prisma pencils and blended with Gamsol.
The avocado and yellow edges were all inked in black to match the sentiment, but the card still needed a little kick in the pants. A few mini jewels and a cheery red border later and I was done.
Creating this was the easy part. Deciding is not easy. HELP!!
