It's Monday and there is a new challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenges and the theme this week is all about "Mythical Creatures."  But there's more!  Little Miss Muffet Stamps is sponsoring this week's challenge so that's a double reason to join in.  :D  So naturally I wanted to join in too and I took inspiration from one of Faye's card and came up with this one...

The stamps I used are the three gargoyles from Little Miss Muffet Stamps.. .Krill the Gargoyle , Laplem the Gargoyle and Naw the Gargoyle.  Then the butterflies and the sentiment stamp are from Whimsy and part of the Notables stamps and dies collection and the butterflies are even from that too.  The rest of the card is made up of the basics paper, glue and sewing.  :D

Here's one of the gargoyles close up so you can see how easy he was to color.  I was aiming for an old statue look as if they've been on the building for centuries ... but then the eyes with a glowing green/yellow as if they're just about to come to life!  :D  I used the Warm gray colors and dotted in texture from the darkest color to the lightest.  By time I got up to W1 then I just colored in the rest.  Then I used YG91 to add some green moss color in random areas.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

ABC Challenges - J for Just as you Like it
Oozak March Challenge - Anything Goes

My daughter also has a card to share!  This one uses another label stamp from Whimsy and then she added a heart-shaped pocket for candy - sounds like a yummy card to me!  The form stars were taped on and this one she lovingly gave to her teacher.  She's so sweat!  (Um.... both my daughter and her teacher!)
