Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto

I had seen this stamp set on someone else's blog and commented on how cute it was. And then I stopped at the LSS and I had to buy it. If you know me, you know that 98% of my stamps are Stampin' Up. This set is from Hero Arts. It's acrylic, I'm a rubber and wood block lover, I find acrylic too soft. And you can see that I have a problem stamping in the bottom photo, I usually get the edge, or some fuzzy on the acrylic and it leavs a nice inky mark. Oh, and the best thing about this set...I needed one that I could colour in and get some Copic practice. Perfect.
And really, what do you do with a little Asian, possibly Chinese doll stamp set? Really, what? And I think it's an Oriental set, people are Asian, things are Oriental. That's #1 on my list of grammer things to remember, right above Lay/Lie...things lay, people lie. How true that is.
While stamping a few songs ran through my head...I'm Turning Japanese, Domo Arigoto Mr. Roboto and Mister, Can You Tell Me Where My Love Has Gone, He's My Japanese Boy. Politicallly incorrect? This is my favourite, but you can see that there is a little black mark by her face, and I can't colour in the lines, but over all I like my shading and colour choices. I really did have problems picking out a skin tone, do I go yellower? Or is that too yellow? I don't want to offend anyone. Let alone any relatives that might receive this card. And if I wasn't Japanese would this be an issue?
I think I'll name her Suki Yaki.
