Clear Dollar Weekend Color Challenge #40 Layer Much?

Hi Everyone! The time has come again! The best part about the weekend, the Clear Dollar Stamps Weekend Color Challenge over at PaperCraft Planet! Yeah! This weekend, our hostess is the lovely and talented Lisa and she has challenged us to use Bermuda Bay, More Mustard, & Silver with an optional Pumpkin Pie OR Certianly Celery and White for our neutral.
Challenging enough for ya? Is for me! I chose to choose pumpkin pie for my optional color, which was a suprise to me! lol .. Luckily, my BFF Cassie included a piece of silver cardstock in a recent package, so I was able to take the silver challenge on!
It did take me quite awhile to choose out my exact paper and my stamp and layout.. I thought this robot from the Bitty Bots (CDstamps) set would be fun with these colors, and so after stamping him on watercolor paper, I paper pieced silver onto his head, body, hands and feet leaving the rest to watercolor.
At first, these colors were a bit intimidating, but after wrestling around with them this morning, I am happy with the result! Hope you guys like it too!

Hi Christi, I love how I can always count on you playing the WCC. I just love this card. I love his striped arms. So cute the colors you used. I love the pinking circles, perfect choice because they look like gears. Nice job gf.
