I have to tell you that the entire time I was making this card, that was going though my head! These outrageously fun stamps are from the DoodleFactory: Urban stamp sheet from Starving Artistamps. I was at a stamp show on Saturday and got this -- I just love this sheet and couldn't wait to play with it!
I colored my robot scene using the Marker Water Coloring technique from the June 2008 edition of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I think it is remarkably similar to the look achieved by coloring with Copic Markers (I have more of those, now, too, thanks to Saturday's shopping spree). It's alot easier, and alot less expensive, with regular markers, though!
The strips on the background were done using the Polished Rainbow technique from the April 2007 issue of the newsletter, and I did a little Rainbow Strip Flip Technique on the pieces (from the June 2005 issue of the newsletter). The spaceship is popped up, and the robot is popped higher than that -- it is very dimensional in person. It's a tiny bit glittery, too -- I added accents with a gelly glitter pen -- but they didn't up with the picture.
One last thing. The original sketch is in a different orientation. This is how I see it:
And this is how it was originally planned:
