Love, Digital-Style

Hello there! :)

I'm back with another teaser for the new MFT release, which goes LIVE this Wednesday, December 2 at 10 pm EST.

As part of this release, there are several new digi stamps being released, in addition to the normal super high-quality clear stamps that MFT normally offers.

One of those new digi stamps, Robot 2, inspired this card, which I think might be my favorite card I've made in a LONG time.

ACK!!! I know! Isn't this robot couple so cute you want to scream?!!! I have such a thing for robots. They just make me happy. Maybe it's because my hubby is a geek, so they make for easy obvious cards for him. Heheh

For the moon, I cut a large gray circle and popped it in to a Cuddlebug folder to give it a cratered moon look. Then I inked over the craters with shimmery white and silver ink to make it shine. Finally I glittered selected "craters" so that the card would really SHINE! :) I popped the moon on a glittery black and white polka-dot background to kind of abstractly simulate the night's sky. I don't know what the blue is supposed to represent. I just looked right! ;)

I started to stitch neatly around the edges, but then my sewing machine went wonky (that's been happening a lot lately!), and the needle actually BROKE OFF in my card. So to fix that mess, I just decided to crazy stitch around the edge instead. I think it works. I love happy accidents!

Here's a close-up of that moon:

And a side view, so you can see the shimmer a bit more:

And here's that adorable robocouple. :) I wish you could see me -- I'm grinning from ear to ear. This couple makes me want to go give my hubby a big smooch (but the lazy bones is still in bed!).

I colored the robots with Copic Markers and then went over selected parts with Copic Spicas and Glossy Accents. This whole card really shimmers and shines!

I just discovered digi stamps yesterday. So what exactly do you do with them? Do you just print them on cardstock and then colour them with copic markers? I don't have copics only watercolour and my printer won't handle the heavy cardstock so that's why I'm a bit confused as to what I'm supposed to do with digistamps. Help!
