I hope you are all enjoying your weekend! We have so many plans over the next several days…one of which is preparing for a “teen boy” birthday sleepover. I can hardly believe I’ll have a 13-year old. Seems like just a few years ago I was carrying his colicky self round and round my house trying to quiet him.
At any rate, I thought I’d pop in here while I have a bit of down time.
I found this adorable Robot stamp set and bright paper at Michaels. (In case you’re wondering, those candies are Gushers. I was crossing my fingers one didn’t gush all over my white drape. Ick.)
Isn’t he cute? While coloring with my much-loved Copics, I was careful to leave bits of white to show as highlights. I especially like this technique on eyes and buttons. They look rather shiny, don’t they?
I used a second robot from the set to create a gift tag. Since this little guy had his “arms” in the air, I chose to insert colorful brads as if he’s juggling. The ribbon, originally white, was dyed using a B39 marker.
Have a great rest of the weekend! Thanks for visiting today!
