Let the Good Times Roll!

It's Tuesday, so I'm sharing a post over at Topflight Stamps. Not only is it Tuesday. it's Mardi Gras, aka Fat Tuesday. Being a festive sort of person,  I decided to create a little scene with a "Let the Good Times Roll" card with Katzelkraft's fun and fabulous Robots 1 Unmounted Red Rubber Stamp Set and Robot Dog

Here it is!

  1. Create a 5" x 7" card from the silver-flecked grey cardstock. Set aside.
  2. Stamp the robot and the dog onto Cryogen cardstock and onto repositonable label paper with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  3. Fussy-cut the label versions and place them over their counterparts on the image panel.
  4. Place the image panel onto the STAY-tion and secure with magnets. Place the magnetic ruler over the bottom part of the panel under the wheels of the robot and dog.
  5. Sponge the light blue ink from the Ombre Prism Ink pad over the masked images and over the top of the ruler.
  6. Use the magnets to secure the stencil over the blue-sponged image panel.
  7. Sponge the same blue ink over the stencil onto the image panel. Remove the stencil.
  8. Move the ruler so that it's covering the top part of the image and sponge Thundercloud ink over the base of the image panel.
  9. Lift the masks and color the images with Copic markers. Retrospectively, I wish I hadn't added the verdigris and rust to the dog and robot. Alas.
  10. Coat the clock, bulbs, the tip of the dogs nose, the goggle lenses, screws, and rivets with several layers of Glaze pen, letting the gel ink dry between each layer. This will create clear dimension and shine on all those elements.
  11. Trim the image panel and mat with black cardstock.
  12. Use the Time Machine die to cut the metallic silver cardstock and adhere to the right side of the card front.
  13. Add different gears atop some of the gears on the Time Machine die-cut.
  14. Adhere the matted image panel as shown.
  15. Use the label printer to create the sentiment and adhere to the card front.
  16. Add some gears to finish the card.
