hello, all! it's tuesday and time for another fabulous challenge at shopping our stash! this week miss carla has asked us to take a walk on the wild side, in a way that's completely inhuman!
well, sorta... :)
ok, ok, what she actually SAID was,
"For this challenge we want to see your birds, bugs or beasts (animals, critters, insects, creepy crawlies, fishes, monsters, etc. Just no people!"
i had intended to use vintage bird images for this one, but whilst re-reading the brief at the very last minute, suddenly the word "monsters" caught my eye and i went off in a COMPLETELY different direction! these cute digis are called "monstrous stamps" by jesse edwards altho i can not currently find them on her website; perhaps they're no longer in print? (sorry!)
i printed them on clear labels; did some old school paper piecing (using only SCRAPS!); and popped them into the ready-made carnival "landscape" on this paper by ta-da creative studios.
(monsta digis (out of print?) by jesse edwards, the green pineapple; patterned paper: ta-da creative studios; sei, basic grey, creative imaginations; white pen: sharpie poster paint; ink: colorbox; font: cry kitty; other: staples brand full page clear inkjet labels, ek success corner rounder)
the result is sort of an odd shape, as well as being quite over the top for a birthday card, but then nephew matthew is going to turn *FOUR* in a couple of weeks, an occasion which obviously needs some seriously crazy celebrating, right?!
pop over to the SOS blog when you get a chance, i guarantee the DT's cards are well worth the trip, plus you can get all the details of where to post your very own card for challenge 16: birds or bugs or beasts (no people)! ♥
