Geared up for Unscripted Sketches!!!
Sketch 107 Reveal...

I have been all GEEKED and GEARED up for this week's Sketch it Saturday sketch #107 over at Unscripted Sketches. Can all my creations be my favorite??? I have been planning to use this guy from My Minds Eye "Lil' Robots" collection to make this card because this week had a piggyback challenge to use metals - Yippee! Gears and screws and washers, oh MY!

I have a serious collection of brads, grommets, screws and found metal objects from my daily travels. Can you pick out all the metal pieces I have in this???

Starting with the robot & border, these were die cuts from MME paper collection. The diamond plate background is a silver paper embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder, then I rubbed it with green inks to tint it & enhance the diamond plate.

Get a count on all the metal bits yet??? There are a lot! And a googlie eye and a little mini fuse I found in the Publix parking lot on Thursday { so I had to use it }. Found metal objects, the large ring around the googly eye, and the washer over a T!m Holtz gear. I used a metal button, a copper colored eyelet, a bronze brad and I repurposed a drycleaning tag with two staples in it. The flat and phillips head screws are actually brads...can't remember from who {maybe Karen Foster}...and did you see the red brad BLINKIE at the top of the robot? To top off this little guy, I have some Karen Foster smiley face brads that have little phrases with them and I used the "miss you" on the chest plate of the robot. This has been rubbed with green ink to make it stand out better.

This card will be going off to "Operation Write Home" after it's debut in the Memorial Day Bloghop next weekend. There's still time to sign up if you want to participate in the fun { Click here for info }. This will be my third year lil' sister and her hubby are in the Army National Guard.

What is Sketch it Saturdays at Unscripted Sketches? Every Saturday morning a new sketch is posted for the week. Flip the sketch, rotate it… create a card, a scrapbook page, a wall hanging, digital, paper, fabric, paint, anything your imagination comes up with! There is no right or wrong way, as long as you are using the Unscripted sketch as the inspiration for your creation! And everyone is invited to join in the fun...and post your creation on their page for all the world to see!

Have a great weekend! I'll be having a little family time, sports watching and some craftiness, too, making things for my booth at the Dada Bazaar on June 2nd. : ) Sb
