Need A Hug?

Thursday, March 5, 2009

Doesn't this guy look like he just needs a good hug?? Poor monster.

He's called Monster Bedtime and he's from Victoria Case's line of monster stamps. Remember when you were little and you swore that there were monsters under your bed, or in your closet? Or your imaginery monster friend? Victoria has captured these characters just perfectly!

So last week Victoria issued her customers a challenge. It was to create a card using the colors pink and brown and use one of her rubber stamps (vs. her digitals). I have a few of her stamps, so I picked a monster I hadn't colored yet, and I immediately thought of this polka dot paper in my stash. (Yes, there is ALOT of polka dot paper in my stash.)

My sewing machine pretty much permanently lives on the dining room table now, so I ran around the edges of the card with some brown thread. I didn't want to cover up that gorgeous paper, so I just popped Mr. Monster on some Bazzil cs and then popped that off the base with dimensionals. That thread on the button is some of that crafter's dental floss. Strange stuff to play with! And that pretty much it covers the whole card. I hope it's enough to win the challenge because the winner gets Victoria's yet to be released 'Sock Monkey' rubber stamp! And that would make me very happy. :D

Remember that Miss Anya card I showed you last week?? Well tomorrow I'll show you her friends!

Aw, poor guy does look like ne needs a hug! {hug} Super cute image and card! I think I need to break down and invest in some Copics. I love my Prismas but the color saturation with the Copics is gorgeous. Hmm, maybe with the tax refund! ha-ha

Oooo, Miss Anya has friends?? Can't wait to meet them!

I just logged in to post to my own blog and this guy was at the top of my follow list. I LOVE him! He kinda reminds me of Disney's Sully from Monsters Inc (who stands guard outside my MiniMe's bedroom door!) As always, FABULOUS job! Now I must stop perusing your work and get to my own posting - you are making this very difficult!!
