A Cute Robot

Hello from hot, sunny Germany with a cute robot card. I am waiting for my longingly awaited Sherlock series to continue tonight, so I thought I'd write a post to distract myself a bit. One hour to go before The Sign of Three is being aired here. But enough of this, here comes another card for the current Simon Says Wednesday Challenge (masculine) and the Lawnscaping Challenge #83.



A robot birthday card:


I used the adorable set Beep Boop Birthday for this. First, I stamped various images and sentiments onto my background and distressed the edges with Distress Ink and the mini ink blending tool. Then I stamped my focal image, the string and the sentiment. Mr Robot was stamped onto white cardstock and colored with copics. Then I fussy-cut him and adhered parts of him with foam tape. He got a bit of shine with Wink of Stella. Then I stamped and heat-embossed my balloon thrice, using clear embossing powder. It was cut out and adhered with foam tape, too.
The metallic dots from Hero Arts dressed the little robot up perfectly:


I hope you like Mr Robot as much as I do! I can't help but sing the song in my head: "domo arigato, mr roboto" every time I see him :o)
Thanks for visiting!

Vanessa

P.S. Haha, auto-correction changed "Copics" into "colics". It's good I read this post twice. Mixed media, ugh!

supplies:
Lawn Fawn Beep Boop Birthday - Ranger Distress Ink, Ink Blending Tool - Hero Arts metallic dots - Copics - Tsukineko ink - Wink of Stella

Hallo Vanessa,
der Roboter ist total süß. V.a. den passende Roboballon in Quadratform finde ich wunderbar. Sherlock finde ich auch ganz wunderbar. Ich bin erst gerstern Abend dazu gekommen die erste Folge der neuen Staffel zu sehen, also kann ich mich heute noch auf Folge 2 freuen. Mal sehen ob ich die dritte dann direkt hinterhergucke oder mir für morgen aufspare :)
LG Sonja
