Space...the final frontier



This Baby Bot Sweet Petite die from Die-Versions is so darn cute and fun to play with.  

The one on top is cut from regular cardstock and his features came from the negative portions of the Super Robot (also a new release).  He's colored with Inka Gold metallic rubs.  The bottom guy is actually cut from a soda can.  This is the first tie I've tried cutting a can because I always thought it would be too hard to get the top and bottom of the can off.  Nope - I was wrong.  Easy, peasy!  And these dies cut the soda can like it was butter.

The background is a Tim Holtz technique - layering acrylic paint, Distress Stains and Distress Ink onto your craft mat, spritzing with water, and dabbing the tag into the puddles.  The stamped globe is actually made from fun foam and the DV Old Globe West die and stamped with Archival Ink.  The title/sentiment is a combination of DV fonts Tick Tock and Little Lizzie
