CDS Sneak Peek - Bitty Bots

This is card number 2 for today and this sweet set is called Bitty Bots and is one of my newest stamp illustrations. This set will be available on August 1st and was designed with little boys in mind because my little man Tait (5 years old) told me that we needed more robots in the house. I was thinking robot maids... he was thinking Transformers... so we sat down and had a heart to heart and came to a mutual agreement, that robot stamps really were the best thing for the Teasdale household. *grin*

This card has quite a few metalic looking things on it - this is what happens when you have your 5 year old standing in your craft room trying to see all of your things. Actually, it's what happens when your 5 year old is spilling embellishments on the floor and your just to busy to put them in their correct place :)

First off we have some tin foil that has been secured to a piece of card stock and run through my cuttlebug for the background. This worked out pretty well as the cardstock that it was secured to holds the embossed shapes from getting squished flat by pressure. Then I added numerous bits of metal around the card with all the brads, metal swirl clip and if you look closely you can see that I added a metal antena on top of the robot's head. This card is a regular metal scrap heap! *wink*

Very cute ... and I actually do have a robot....one of the Roomba Vacuums. I love him. We named him Deckard after Harrison Ford's character in Bladerunner. Gives me more time to papercraft!
