Robot Birthday!

So, my sister needed me to make a card for one of her friends. And for the birthday, they are going to go see Wall*E, the new Disney/Pixar movie. She requested that I use a robot on the card. I happily obliged! I started out with a vague sketch in mind. I stamped the robot on white cardstock, ran it through the cuttlebug, then stamped the sentiment. Next up came the colouring. I couldn't resist picking up a pack of Koh-i-noor Woodless Colour Pencils. They are marvelous. The coverage you get and the blending, well I'm sure you've all heard it already, but they really are that good! I coloured the robot with shades of green, and added a bit of sparkle with some Spicas. I thought about finding some good paper to match a robot theme, but I'm pretty sure I don't have any. Instead, I went with embossing this fun circle background. I figured that seemed fun and whimsy in the robot kind of way.
