Out of this world!

It's Bellarific Friday folks and this week I chose something totally different for me, you might say Cakey WATT is out of this world different! I'm really a girly girl at heart...you know...shoes, bags...that kind of thing. I'm somewhat high maintenance. But I do have a couple young nephews on hubs side who will be in need of birthday cards this summer and I thought these little robots would be perfect and they are so STINKIN' cute. If you were with me last year you might recall I gave them Tyler the jock and high tops.


I colored this guy up in copics in the following colors, but shading was done with pencils and the sponging around the edge with Versamagic Aspen Mist:
BG10, 72, 75 and blender
R24, E08
E44, 47
Y000, 11, 13, 17
E50, 51, 53, 42, 43

I even managed to follow the sketch pretty closely this week using Basic Grey offbeat paper for my color scheme and the Special Boy sentiment that was split into two lines to fit into my nestie oval. And since he is a robot I used lots of eyelets to mimic rivets. I will fess up, I was so anxious to get the picture taken I forgot the finishing touches which I added after and that would be glitter on the candles and a dot of gell pen on his rivets. It added just that little bit of texture to make it special!

Have a fantastic weekend everyone and don't forget to check out Emily's blog today to catch a glimpse of all the submissions....they are getting better and better each week...you go girls...can't wait to see them! As of now, I have NO plans this weekend except to color up a storm!

Beautiful colouring! I guess life would be boring if we could all colour as beautiful as you. I like that flower and leaves, they almost look like clay until you look closer. Or am I getting old, lol!
