I've been chomping at the bit to use my new My Favorite Things bionic bots stamps and dies that I bought to use on SAS4Kids cards. When I saw
the Shopping Our Stash Mirror Mirror challenge to use something that reflects on a card/project, I thought about finding a metallic treatment of some sort for a little bot.
To achieve a metallic, reflective appearance, I decided to go with aluminum foil I used spray adhesive to attach the aluminum foil to a scrap piece of cardstock. Then I stamped the little bot with StazOn jet black.
Another consideration was wanting the foil to appear in three places. (A painting teacher once told me that a color should appear in three different places in a painting.) So, I added the foil border to the heart, popping the red center portion, and a tiny silver circle to the bottom right of the card.
I cut a small slit between the bot's feet so he could be stepping over the sentiment strip.
Just love, love, love these little bots! Think they will be making lots of appearances on Send a Smile 4 Kids cards. Since this was my first time using these new stamps and dies, I'm going to link this up to Darnell's current NBUS challenge. :)
In addition, I am going to link this card up to the Monday and Wednesday Simon Says blog challenges. SSS is celebrating Stamptember. And, appropriately, stamping is key to both of this week's challenges. The SSS Monday challenge is to use a stamp and a punch or die. The SSS Wednesday challenge is to use a stamp. Check and check!
And, I just learned that Word Art Wednesday is celebrating its 200th post. So, this little bot is going to be making an appearance over there, too. Thanks for the invitation to play along, Karen. And congrats on reaching this milestone!
There is a fun pirate-inspired challenge going on at Words 2 Scrap By! We'd love for all our mateys to join us.
And, the newest Cards in Envy challenge went live yesterday. The challenge for the next couple of weeks is to make a song-inspired A2 card.
Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
