This is  Bob and he is perfect for a birthday celebration.  I started with this wonderful image from SheepSki Designs and colored him up with Copic Markers.  Once he was complete, the confetti fell!  

Then I turned to Cricut Design Space and cut gears and the sentiment.  I heat embossed the shiny gear wth embossing powder and painted the other grey gears.  

The sentiment was heat embossed in two colors!  I started with blue powder and melted that.  Then I inked up and used yellow powder X2.  A very fun look I'll be using again for sure!  

The background is just basically finger painting with embossing ink!  hahaha  I stuck my fingers in the ink pad and pressed on the cardstock letting some of it go heavier than other places.  Then I sprinkled it with silver embossing powder!  Very messy and fun!  ;)

  3. Fabulous birthday card, Katrina! I am unsure how you did the tiny confetti. It looks as if you stamped and colored over your patterned paper - very creative. Thank you for playing along with us at Double Trouble Challenge #56.

    1. Hey Melanie! I actually added the confetti with Copic markers after coloring the robot! Yeah, I'm just that crazy to sit making dots with markers forever and ever! hahaha

    2. We card makers are certifiably crazy!

  4. What a great masculine birthday card... or for that matter, little girls, too! Love all the bright colors. You did a great job coloring the robot with your Copic markers, Katrina! Love all the texture you created by cutting out gears, and embossing the sentiment cutout! Thank you for joining our Double Trouble "Birthday Blowout" challenge this week!!! -Donna
