Not quite Robbie....

It's my husband's bosses birthday tomorrow so I've made a card for him to give him.  He works in a small independent comic/book/sci-fi shop called Sheffield Space Centre which has been going for about 30 years now and has lots of loyal, if a little geeky, supporters and with only 4 staff they're all pretty close so do send each other cards and presents.  The man in question is a big fan of Robbie the Robot  from The Forbidden Planet which I don't have an image for, but I thought this little robot from Christy Croll's Stamping Bella range was the close enough....

He's stamped onto blending card and coloured with just cool and toner grey copics (with a little yellow for the cake) and I've highlighted his "studs" with silver.  I used what I like to call the "heinz" nestie lables as I think they lend themselves to masculine images - I got the DP yesterday, but stupidly threw the packaging away when I opened it and don't know who its by - sorry.  The ticket is a whimsey rubber stamp (cut by hand as I haven't gotten around to getting the die yet but it's an easy shape to cut freehand) and the sentiment is from elyzbels.  I finished with some silver rivets in the corners which are actually craft candy dots, but cut smaller with my cropadile.

He fits a couple of challenges:

At Cards for Men - it's nice and easy this week - anything goes as long as it's masculine -

Cute card thursday want something clean and simple and I think he's a cute robot, and my design is pretty CAS - 

Hope you like him as much as I do ;-)
