The belated thank you's..........


The following 2 cards are the ones I made whilst my boys were away. I decided to get out both of my 'robot' sets from Darkroom Door by Rachel Greig. I have only used them a couple of times but they are so cute! As the images are so fine, I had trouble with stamping them onto watercolour paper because of the grain, but I guess that just makes them look rustic ;) Anyways, the first card has both robots stamped straight onto Kraft cardstock with Chocolate Chip ink. The front of the card has the girl robot who has a paper piecsed skirt on, and the inside of the card I have gently used a blender pen to colour in his hair - seem to always ball up the paper when I use a blender pen :(
Anyway, this card goes to Kari who is such a lovely demonstrator - have only met her once, but she has bent over backwards for me. (please excuse the writing on the left card - didn't photograph it till after I wrote in it. I always forget to take photos of my cards!)

The next card was a tag I cut from my slice then I used stars also cut from my slice machine, stuck onto the kraft cardstock and sponged with chocolate chip, red, and tempting turquoise. I then used the stars, arrow and lightning bolt from the same stamp set and stamped them in chocolate chip. Made my own decorative cardstock! Cheap too! lol I stamped the girl robot onto watercolour paper (this is where the image doesn't come out too sweet) and then using an aquapen, coloured her in using various inks. I then added two brads for her 'bras', stamped 'you're awsome' in three ink colours, embossed with clear embossing powder, and then cut them out and stuck them on! Tada.......easy peasy. This thank you card goes to Alisa who has been an absolute gem. Thanks Alisa!
