eek! a monster

i ordered this set from my cute stamps ages ago, and i had not gotten them inky...until now! :) i think this stamp set is SO cute, so i don't know what was holding me back, but for some reason the color story at the play date cafe's latest challenge was calling to me to use this set! which is odd...you'll see! here's the inspiration photo:

and here's the stamp set:

not exactly a match made in heaven, but i totally made it work for me! :) ha ha! 

ok, anyway, here's my card:

fun, right? well, silly anyway! :)
i paper pieced the little godzilla and fussy cut out the heart and speech bubble. i added some glossy accents to the heart and also to the 'scales' of the monster (which i also colored a little bit to make them slightly darker. :)
he he! i used my white gel pen to color in those monstrous teeth, too! grr! ha! the city scape was stamped with some hero arts shadow ink (soft sand) and i finished it off with the tiny little sentiment (in a way!) at the bottom. :)

i think this is one of those cards you want to give to someone when you want to tell them you love them and you don't care who knows! shout it! ha ha! i don't know why, but i think it's cute and can't wait to send it and make some either smile...or cock their head to the side and think...oh sam. :)
