Mr. Roboto

I've been playing with the Sushi and Wasabi set from A Muse Studio, and that Styx song has been stuck in my head on and off for days! :)

All materials from A Muse Studio, and available at my webstore:
- solid cardstock in Blush, Sage, and Sugar
- patterned cardstock in woodgrain (I used a scrap of the old A Muse woodgrain cardstock from my stash. The new stuff is just as cute, but a little bit lighter in color.)
- pigment inks in Grass, Bubblegum, and French Roast
- "Sushi and Wasabi" stamp set
- pearl stickers in Sugar
- Woodgrain Background stamp
 
I inked the branch stamp in French Roast ink, and then "kissed" it against the Woodgrain Background stamp to create the texture of the tree bark. (I love that the A Muse Studio inks are pigment inks because they stay wet longer so you can do a lot of great techniques with it! If you're not familiar with the kissing technique, stay tuned for a video tutorial in the not-too-distant future.) I used a Copic marker to color some of the Sugar pearl stickers so they would coordinate with the pink flowers.

All materials from A Muse Studio, and available at my webstore:
- solid cardstock in Fern, Sage, and Sugar
- polka dot cardstock in Cherry
- Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
- "Sushi and Wasabi" stamp set
- other: Sakura Stardust Pen, various Copic and watercolor markers
 
I absolutely love the sentiment on this card! So cute! (Except it kind of bugs me that the comma after the first line is completely unnecessary! - Sorry A Muse!) Nothing too fancy on this card... I just colored in the stamped image with a combination of various Copic and watercolor markers, and added a little glitter to the centers of the sushi.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope your week went by faster than mine did! :)
