Sketch Girls Challenge #5



It is that time again...for another Sketch Girl challenge. For this challenge I created this fun Bot card. You know how I love puns, so I had to use another one. I picked up 3 robots with sentiments at the Scrapbook Expo in St. Charles this past August. I giggled when I bought them, and the sentiments still make me laugh. The sentiment is normally straight, but I curved it when I placed it on the block to curve around the edge of the circle. I mounted the Bot on Tangerine cardstock that was cut in a circle and then cut out notches to make a gear. The other gear is chipboard that I painted orange.

Stop by the Sketch Girl blog to play along and hop on over to the other girl's blogs to check out their work using the links in the far left column or at the Sketch Girl Blog. Happy hopping!

Supplies:
Paper:
Sahara Sand, Tangerine Tango (SU!); Solar White (Neenah); Patterned Paper (Sassafras))
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Momento); Basic Black Marker (SU!)
Stamps: Robot stamp and Setiment (Storage Units, Ink & More)
Extras: Copics; Ribbon (Basic Grey); Buttons (Making Memories); Chipboard (Maya Road); Pearls (Mark Richards)
