A little bit of Monkey in all of us

How cool is this image from Oddball Art - Bubba Baboon, not sure why but it really makes me smile.  He was my choice for our December  challenge which is always anything goes.  We do have an optional theme of Holiday Haunts and Silly Stripes but I used that in my next project... stay tuned but that is using the awesome Creepy Cute Witch Legs, Skirt & Broom which I will share on the 19th.

Ive finally found some mojo in using patterned paper again, which is good considering I have a small truckload of it in my craft room.  I was worrying it would be forever wasted or .... scarily that I would donate it.   Crisis averted. 

Please head over and play in our challenge, we love looking at your creations and I'm sure you love the change to win prizes.   Also don't forget to use my DT discount code DTPENNY10 if you choose to buy some images.

Oddball Challenge


As always ANYTHING GOES but for NOVEMBER our theme is DARK AND DISMAL

I got to play with the mason jar image which comes with a few options and then I paired it with the cutest kitty ever (oh.. scary.. I mean scary :) )  I used PNG images so I could overlay them to make one combined image to work with.

I went through a box full of backgrounds that I had created using watercolour paper,  soaking up ink from other projects.   I had popped these away and when I went through them I could see that this image paired so well.  I shadow stamped the heart background with second generation stamping  and added some hearts in archival ink to link it all in. 
The hugs sentiment is cut on my cameo in gloss black card.
(and now that I know that it cuts so well, I may use it more often).  

Head on over to the challenge blog and check out all of the inspiration from the team and don't forget to enter to play along for some great prizes.
