Magical Monday: Boom Bot Valentines

Magical Monday seems to come and go around here…and this week? It’s here to keep you entertained!

Boom Bots Valentines in Copic marker

These sweet little robots from Paper Smooches just cried out for some Copic work! I stamped them in a blue grey ink (and the red bits in my favorite red ink)….then went to town with my markers.Watch the video below, or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

The shiny little bots also needed a little shine, too – Glossy Accents to the rescue! Then I sliced the paper so I could pop the bottom panel up on some dimension, and tied on some twine to soften it a little.

  9. Hey! You must’ve been tuned into my wavelength this morning – I was thinking about how to use this stamp set for my grandson’s Valentine card – thanks for some great ideas!

  10. Hi! Great start to the week. The music was a perfect fit to the card. I loved the shadow outline in B21, but when you added the BG10 it was perfect. The texture you added to the background with 0 was over the top.

    This is crazy, I’m not that into robots, but I love this card. I look at it and have to smile!

  11. Hi Sandy, Great card! I love how you used the colorless blender to give the background that grid look!
    Welcome back from CHA and congratulations on the new website. It is working fabulously from this side.

  12. Wonderful card.

  13. The little dog bot has officially stolen my heart. Also, red and grey–one of my favorite color combinations! Thanks for starting my day with a smile!
