Robotic Birthday

Welcome

Today I am sharing a card that uses the robot image from Dr Digi - I won a voucher,  and  John was so pleased I had chosen this image that he also sent the matching paper for me.
(It is now sold as a set) 


I sized and printed out the robot to take the stage on the card front, and then coloured him up using metallic paints and pens, some of the sheen and sparkle you can see in the photo below.


The image was fussy cut and placed over the paper.  The seven stones represent the age of the recipient, and they were mounted on black sparkle card, over a strip of silver sparkle tape.


The greeting was stamped and embossed in silver, on silver card, and coloured with a silver pen.
This is one of my original stamps from (the now defunct) Kiwistamps, who got me into this craft!!

More silver and black tape and card, and more robot paper finished the base of the easel, and a couple of brads held the main panel upright. 

I am linking this to:
