Deconstructed Robot

Hi friends!  Happy Tuesday.  Today I have a fun little 2 year birthday card for one of the boys' friends.  His party was construction themed, so I decided to make a little construction bot for his card and this week's Deconstructed Sketch (flipped on its side) seemed like the perfect jumping off point.


I started by stamping this robot from Birthday Bots, then coloring with Copic markers.  I punched three coordinating mickey mouse ears for balloons, then popped them up on different levels of dimensionals and drew in the strings.  The yellow one is colored with copics, the smoky slate and basic grey ones are just cardstock wiped around the edges with pewter distress stain.  Because even robots love Mickey Mouse, right?  The silver piece is smoky slate cardstock embossed with a clockworks embossing folder then rubbed with the pewter distress stain.  The other layer is basic grey and I embossed the turning and the 2 from Geared Up in silver, then added a few sprinkles of Metal Mix Sequins.

The party was a blast and the boys actually ate cake for the first time ever.  They've refused it every time we've offered until Saturday.  It was chocolate and messy and I'm pretty sure the sugar content was enough to fuel them for a month!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a great day!
