Shhh... The secret's out

So I have not been posting because I had a secret and I just knew that I would blab it so I stayed away. But the secret is out!  I was chosen for the Inktegrity Design team!  I was lucky enough to discover them this summer when they sponsored a challenge I participated in and they have the most adorable images in their digi shop!  For the new team reveal there is a challenge going on.  The theme is Anything Goes.  The winner gets to pick some digis from the store so go check it out and see what the team has done to inspire you.  I chose Mr Robot to work with.  Funny story about this card I made.  I could not decide whether I wanted to use it as a Birthday or a Thank You card.  I had thought up some cute sentiments for each of them and finally decided it would make quite an unusual Thanks card and would be great for a male.  As soon as I finished it my son got an invite to a party this weekend and the kid loves robots!!  Well I guess I will be printing out this image again soon.  I also made a cute little tag to go with this.  Wouldn't that be adorable tied around some home made cookies or other goodies?  My fave thing about digi stamping is being able to change the size. 
So for the computer generated sentiment I did a fun technique.  I trimmed my piece down and inked the edges, but then I colored the whole thing with my Clear Stardust Jelly Roll pen, then covered it with 3 coats of Liquid Glass.  I love how it looks like a sparkly epoxy sticker!  Also I don't know if you can see all the shimmer in this card, but the image is colored with my Zig markers, then parts of it are covered either with the Stardust pen or my Copic Spica glitter pens.  The postage stamp shaped red piece is painted with Creative Inspirations paint in Garnet.
