PKS Challenge 13-8

Hi there and happy Monday to you!
So, what are you up to today?  It's yet another rainy, yucky day here in my neck of the woods.  But, that's ok because rainy, yucky days are wonderful for staying inside and crafting away the day.  I've got so much going on in my craft corner right now (I'm so glad that you can't see the mess).  And, I'm having so much fun because I'm playing with the newest images from Peachy Keen Stamps!  That's's almost time for the March 2013 Release and you are gonna be so happy to see these little cuties, oh my gosh!  Wish I could tell you more, but you're going to have just a few more days!

While you're waiting, how about joining in on the current challenge going on over at Peachy Keen Stamps?  This one is kinda different, but lots of fun :  3D Challenge add Metal.  Make a 3D creation of your choice and add something metallic.  You can use metallic ink, paper, brads, embellishments, etc. Read all the rules and guidelines here.

I have been wanting to use the fun Peachy Keen Background Stamp Geared Up Background and I thought this challenge would be the perfect time.....

I had a tough time photographing this little guy because of the metallic paper!

* I started with a small 4X4 inch canvas from Michael's and inked the edges up with Brilliance Platinum Planet Ink.
* I cut a piece of royal blue cardstock just slightly smaller than my canvas and stamped it with the "Geared Up Background" stamp from Peachy Keen.  I used the Brilliance Platinum Planet ink for this step also.  Then I glued the cardstock to my canvas.

*The robot is from "My Scrap Chick".  The file is called "Robot Valentine"
* I used some silver metallic paper for a few of the cuts
* His sweet face is from the Peachy Keen Stamp set Erkle and Merkle Face Assortment
* The fun, metal gears are from the jewelry making section at Michael's and I just added a few of them here and there.

And, this picture is just for fun....looks like he has a flashlight on top of his

Thanks so much for stopping by today and a special thanks to those of you who left such sweet comments on yesterday's post. It was a special day and your comments really touched me!  So, now I'm off to play with those fabulous, new, awesome Peachy Keen Stamps...I know, I's a tough job, but somebodys gotta do it!

Until next time,
