The new May Release stamp set, “Wok On!” is my favorite. And that’s coming from someone that’s never eaten sushi! The images are adorable and the sentiments so puny. Don’t you just want to pinch the “cheeks” on those sushi rolls! LOL!
So rather than google the “correct” coloring for sushi and all its accoutrements, I decided to think “outside the box” and color them non-traditionally. Plus, I wanted to use the sentiment “I Like the Way You Roll,” as if the two matching sushis are accepting the turquoise one for being different, and it’s ok. Whew! We’re getting deep here! LOL!
I used my Brother Scan N Cut machine to cut out the rolls and then colored them with Copic markers. The background was created with a square stencil opening in which I blended a wash of pink Distress Oxide shades before using a cloud stencil for added texture. Kat‘s “Sparkling Clear Droplets” highlighted the fish eyes and Nuvo Dream Drops in “Love Potion” made those cheeks just pop!
For my second card, the turquoise sushi made another appearance, but this time he’s hanging out with his buddy, “Soy.”
Once again, I colored the images with Copic markers before adhering them to the “Wood Floor” die cut from Penny Black. The flowers adhered to the teal background are actually stickers from my stash. I stamped the sentiment onto one of Kat‘s “Stitched Sentiment Strips” dies, before adding Kat’s orange and yellow “jewels” to the centers of the flowers.
