It’s such a long time since I’ve posted due to Christmas shopping hours (we have a jewellery shop) and a very longggggggg bout of the flu I didn’t have the energy or the inclination to create. I’m back now with a card for a few challenges as I just adore hearts and this is the time of year when I get to use my favourite products and some new ones that have been sitting on my desk now for a few weeks.
I absolutely adore this Tim Holtz Robotics die I received it recently it’s quite an old one and I was amazed at the possibilities. There are lots of individual pieces so you can create your own cute or not so character. I used distress inks applied directly to my glass mat spritzed them with water and dragged my card through it. When dry I flicked on some gold paint and then embossed with clear embossing powder.
The Little heart is also by Tim Holtz called faceted heart I used the same colouring method as described above and then adhered it to my little robot’s chest. A couple of Pinkfresh gold blobs and A Tim Holtz sentiment and Ta-Dah! My cute (well I think so robot is born).
I’m entering the following challenges
Tic Tac Toe I used heart,free and die cut
Cardz for Guys A valentine for Guyz !!
The Sisterhood of Crafters Who are asking us to use hearts
NBUS Challenge #47 as neither of the above dies have been used before.

Such an amazing card, love how you colored the robot, and the addition of the gold balls is a perfect touch. Thanks for sharing with us at Cardz 4 Guys!

This is astounding. I love your thought process, always so creative. It looks like pieces of a metal toy robot, you have attached to the card. You really are a magician. Love this Marie. Good to see you again, I hope you’re back to 100% of health. Hugs x
Thank you Faith all I’m feeling much better
So glad you are back and feeling better! I adore your sweet robot, I thought you had used some sort of metal… your cardstock looks amazing!
Thank you so much
So sorry to hear you’ve been poorly Marie and I hope you are back to your perky self now. I’m loving this quirky card! The robot is very cute and I love the blue patch of ink that grounds him and the wonderful metallic effect. Thank you for coming to play with us at the Tic Tac Toe Challenge! Vicky x
Thank you so much
I think you are a magician, Marie, or maybe a magical jeweler! I’m not sure how you created this metallic effect with just smooching ink and gold, but it’s incredible! I can see where one could have a lot of fun with the bits and bobs! Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! I hope you are completely well now and stay that way.
Thank you so much Darnell
Glad you’re feeling better Marie – your robot is a triumph! So much texture and interest – and oh so cute! Thanks for playing along with our TicTacToe challenge board this week!
