When I was looking through the preorder stamp sets my 5 year old son walked in the room and fell in love with the Lots of Bots stamp set. He was so excited about the stamp set, that I just could not pass it up for him. He loves to stamp with me but often complains that my stamps are too “girly” for him to use. This set really didn't appeal to me and I had no idea how I would use it but I just had to get it for him. I have spent a lot of time just staring at it and pairing it up with different colors trying to get some inspiration. Then he asked me to use it to make a birthday card for him to take to a party, so I had to make something work.
I used brushed silver and crushed curry cardstock to paper pierce the robot. I wanted to give it a little bit of depth to the different pieces of the body of the bot so I first stamped on the brushed silver and cut out the pieces that I wanted to be the thickest. Then I stamped on crushed curry an glued the silver pieces on. Then I cut out everything but the joints and attached it an image stamped on whisper white cs.
