Silly Me for CASology #167.....

Hello Everyone: I have a card to share with you today for the CASology challenge this week. Their cue card is "SILLY" so, after really looking high and low for a silly looking image, I suddenly remember this super cute Stampin Up! set, sadly, sadly retired, called "Monstermaniacs", which has the silliest looking "monsters'' ever!! Here is my card.
This silly and not at all scary monster is one of 5 images, equally funny, that come in this set. I gave this little guy a very slimy green color and bright, purple hands, I put a pair of googly eyes and also, I adorned his antennae with two purple Rhine Stones.
Ain't he just soooo scary? He is even saying ''Boo'' to you!! Are you scared now?  I stamped this image onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and just used my Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps dipped in baby oil to color him, I put a bit of shadow with the back pencil and I did a score line under him, but it doesn't show very good on this photo. I tried to take another one but the batteries on my camera run out, I couldn't find not one single battery in the entire house, ughhh!! Guess where I'm going later.....
Anyway, I hope you like this card, I hope you find it silly and funny too.
Here is the Cue Card for CASology's ''SILLY'' challenge.
Thank you for stopping by, till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

  5. Adorable! I remember when SU had the contest and had customers design these stamps. I always thought this set was a winner, and so glad it made it. I didn't buy it though....(sad face here). But only because I don't have any young ones to make a card for these days. They're all grown up. I love your take on this little guy

    1. Oh my Bobbi, this is news to me, how fabulous that SU asked customers to design stamp sets, as soon as I saw this one, I grabbed it, I've used it many times for kids cards, my daughters have a lot of little nieces and nephews on their hubby's side of the family.
      The other images are just as cute.

    1. Thank you Bonnie, I checked and this set came out in October of 2013, super cute. I got it because there are a lot of little kids on my youngest daughter's hubby's side of the family, the cards I've made with this "Monsters" are always a hit.
