Simon Says..........Masculine

wed-newchallenge-header

Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!


We have a fun theme this week - Masculine, and we're playing with Tim Holtz goodies.  You don't need to use them to enter, but if you have any, we'd love to see how you use them!  And since our Monday challenge has the same theme this week, you can enter your card into both challenges if you'd like, and get 2 chances to win!

I must confess that I thought I'd have a hard time with this one, but in actuality I had a blast putting it together!

SSS June 7

supplies: white card base, Tim Holtz idea-ology corrugated cardboard from Textured Surfaces,  Alpha Tile, Menagerie paper pad, sticker sentiment from Small Talk, Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Robot 1 wood stamp, metal sheet, silver brads for eyes, metal button, washers from DH's workshop, My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched Rectangle die

I used a light and a medium grey paper to stamp the image, then cut out the light robot and paper-pieced it back onto the medium panel, which had been die-cut with a wonky stitch.  Then I used anything silver I could find to accessorize him.  The panel was then attached to a silver metal sheet, and that went onto the corrugated cardboard background.  The "R" and the sticker sentiment went on last.

Here's a closer shot to show you some of the fun details I added:
