Today, being Tuesday, is the day for new releases at Bugaboo Stamps.  Oh my gosh, are they cute this week!!!

Here is a card I made with one of them ...

This little guy is called "Monster 1" and is available in the Bugaboo Stamps store HERE.  I coloured him using Copics, and used a white gel pen for accents.  Then he got a thin coating of Glossy Accents and was left overnight to dry. He was popped into an embossing folder and whipped through the Cuttlebug - and now he's got some fabulous texture!  A little warty perhaps, but who couldn't love a little face like that?!

To finish off the card I used an offcut of some embossed paper that looks like a bigger version of the little monster's warty skin. An offcut of striped DP, three oval red gems and a dark red heart shaped gem were added too.  The sentiment is one that I created in MS Word.

If you would like to see the rest of the Bugaboo DT's creations, click here - I can really recommend you go there and see the many ways that this little monster can be used on a card.
I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
