I Need a Reboot…Don’t we all!

Morning, Morning.

Happy 1st of May everyone.   I can’t believe it’s May already.  It was only Christmas last week!!!

This week over at Addicted to Stamps and More we have a colour challenge. Please see the colour chart below.  To see full details of the challenge, the fabulous DT pieces and to join in the fun please click on the link above.

Before I share my DT piece for this week I want to give a big warm welcome to the two new members of the Addicted to Stamps and More DT – Sandie from London Days blog and Deepti from Catchy Crafts.

This is my card for this weeks challenge.  I was a bit stumped at first with these colours but I did have a lot of fun making this card.


I stamped my image onto white card using black archival ink.  I masked the robot off and  the outside areas of the white card.  I then coloured the card using distressing inks.  Using some darker coloured ink, I added some dots and circles with the aid of a stencil/masky thingy.

I removed the robot mask and stamped some additional springs and nuts around his head and stamped the text.

I coloured the robot in using a damp paint brush and some felt pen ink.  For the ink I just scribbled with my felt pens onto a piece of plastic and picked up the ink with a small damp paintbrush.

I used a die to cut out the cogs and the small circles are just scrap from previous die cutting sessions.

I have just realised who this character reminds me of…..yep you UB after a night on the gin!! LOL!

Just to share.  Clear stamps used: “Overhaul Needed” – Lindsay Mason design.

Oooo! nearly forgot.  These are the colours for this weeks challenge.


Thats all from me for today.  I we will see you on Saturday with the new Addicted to CAS challenge.

Take care and happy crafting.

Best Wishes Florence x

    LOVE! You had a fabulously creative vision of how this card should look and you executed it perfectly! The robot image is so fun … and I love the way you’ve masked and sponged the background and added all the bits and pieces to look like he’s needing some help to pull together 🙂 Great job. Loll xx

    I love all the layers of gears Flo! The colors work so well with the robot image you chose. I am going to have to show this to my little boys. They will love the robot.
