Red Carpet Studio Challenge #100: The Iron Giant


Check it out...100th challenge!!! Go to Red Carpet Studios to find out all the details of entering our challenges! You could win a great prize from one of my favorite companies: LAWN FAWN. This month's sponsor inspired my choice of movie for this challenge as they have a wonderful little stamp set of ROBOTS!

So here's our movie: THE IRON GIANT

Your Challenge is to use this movie poster as your inspiration. Now that's not hard! Look at all the marvelous things in it that can be utilized for any kind of papercraft. It has a lovely sunset, a massive robot, a giant moon, searchlights and clouds, a metallic pinged logo, bright colors on a dark background, dark silhouette shapes...there's loads there...keep looking!

So here's a few projects that I did for my challenge:

Little Robots:  I imagine the translations says, "happy birthday". Using Lawn Fawn's robot stamps (You could win this!), I paper pieced the two robots using their Hippo gray papers from the Let's Polka 6 X 6 pad. (You could win this,too!) I stamped the square balloons to add some color and the beep and boop. The graph border is from a different set from Freshly Squeezed (now defunct).

I can't help but smile at these cute little stamps.
So here's some more:

On these two cards, I colored in the robots with markers rather than paper piecing them. The background papers are also from Lawn Fawn, the Let's Polka collection. (Hippo dots and stripes)

This one is almost done...I just have some gears to add...but imagine that!...I ran out of them! So this little guy is just waiting for some Idea-ology gears to perk up a corner or two.

Here's another "Robot":

Mister Fancypants:  This card uses a set from Stampers Anonymous called Dandy Robot. (Art by Brett Weldele) It's a straight-forward stamped card. I added some idea-ology gears in the corner and the background is a random assortment of numbers repeatedly stamped to form a background pattern. I used various browns from the Distress Ink line and heat embossed the words with copper embossing powder.

I also inked the edges of the card and decided against coloring it in.

What do you think? Is it the year of the Robots?
If you want to see another one, go HERE. It'll be worth it! (Hint: it uses another robot from that Stamper's Anonymous link above!)

Thanks for playing along with Red Carpet Studio this month. We're off on a hiatus for a bit after this month so enjoy the month of May! Come back to my blog once in a while as I'll be posting projects as usual. Thanks for checking me out!
