A new twist at Our Craft Lounge!

Our Craft Lounge is starting 2011 off with a new twist.  Instead of doing just it's weekly sketch challenge, they are going to do different types of challenges.  This week is a color challenge!  So.......lets get started!

RED     BLACK      KRAFT

Use these colors and a stamp/stamp set from Our Craft Lounge to make your project. (Doesn't have to be a card).  Post it to Mr. Linky on the web site here .  At the beginning of each month, one crafter is picked from the submitted projects.  This person gets to pick an OCL stamp set of their choice as a prize.

Since I just won the 'Botz family' set last month in their month long daily giveaway, that is the set I used for this challenge.
This set is just TOO CUTE!  I had to use a flash to show the black springs against the black cardstock.  (Sorry for the glare)  Doesn't he just make your heart spring!
Mr. Robot was stamped, colored, cut out and put p on pop dots.  His stamped antenna were cut off and replaced with some black coated wire that I wrapped around a toothpick to create the spring.  I then (this sounds so brutal!) cut out his heart, attached it to another piece of wire made into a spring and then put the start of the spring into his chest.  Now his heart really springs!

Recipe:
Image and sentiment:  Our Craft Lounge, 'the Botz family'
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo black to stamp, Copics to color
DP:  Costco special from years ago
Border punch:  EK success
Embossing Powder:  Zing red glitter embossing powder
Stickles:  Ice clear
Brads:  from my stash

This card may be entered in the following challenges:
Our Craft Lounge:  Red, Black and Kraft
My Partner in Crafting Crime:  Anything new (brand new stamp set that I won)
Fab N Funky:  Anything Goes
Stampin B's Design Team:  Old favorite and Something brand New (DP paper I hoard, new stamp set I won)
