Thanks a Bot

Hi!  We have another fabulous sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week and its creator is the fabulously-talented Narelle Farrugia.  And oh, does my CAS-loving heart adore this sketch even if I didn't remember the placement exactly when it came to making my card....

I was dying to color the wee bots from Paper Smooches Boom Bots set, and this sketch was the perfect opportunity.

I've had this set for a few weeks and the other day I watched an amazing video by Jennifer Dove on how to color metal.  Well, she made it look so easy that I had to have a go and this was my first attempt.  You have to check out her card and video - they will blow you away!  

So anyway, after I colored Bender and Bendette, I die-cut them and set them aside.  I used a die from Blueprints 24 for the grey and black layers and white embossed the sentiment onto the black layer.  All layers are popped up on foam tape.

I finished the card with a few rainstones.

Thanks for visiting!  Please check out my fellow teamies' blogs - their cards are amazing as always!
