MCT Designers Challenge ~ happy birthday!

Happy Thursday and welcome to My Creative Time's Designer Challenge!  This is a great challenge since you get to pick the challenge.  That's right you can choose to use the photo for inspiration, the colors, or the sketch.  Of you can use all three, totally your choice!

For my project I choose to use all three!  the colors were so fun and the party theme with a robot was just perfect for MCT's newest set Best Bots Forever Stamp Set!

On the background I used a stencil to lightly ink the bubbles then highlighted with Wink of Stella.  I had fun creating all the patterns on the paper with stamps...that's right I only used solids.  Also I didn't have the right shade of hemp, so I quickly colored my white hemp with a copic marker.  This was a new trick for me and wasn't sure it was going to work...but it did :)
