Happy Friday crafty peeps! Today I am sharing my DT inspiration project for this week's Cut it Up Challenge. This week's theme is "Use a Number" and as always you must also you a die cut.
I decided to make a boy's birthday card since I have been dying to use my Tim Holtz mini blueprint Robot stamps. I call this project I, Robot for those of you who may have seen the movie!
The background piece was created using Ranger Foil card stock which I ran through the Vagabond with the Tim Holtz Sizzix embossing folder. The technique used to make the foil look like steel is "painted industrial" from Tim Holtz- I thought this would make a super background for these robots.
The blueprints were stamped in Ranger Archival ink and colored with Prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Pumice Stone Distress ink was applied over top and I used some embellishments to really give the "nuts and bolts" effect. The robots were adhered to the background piece with homemade Xyron dimensional tape (see my video here).
The sentiment "celebrate" is my die cut (TH Sizzlits) for this card and it was cut from the foil card stock to coordinate with the background and adhered with the Xyron 3" Sticker Maker.
I hope you join in the fun this week for the Cut It Up Challenge- so get out your dies and die cutting machine and get inky!
