Don't Make Me Kill You

Good morning and happy Monday, I hope you had a great weekend. Today I'm over at the Ink Art Designs Stamping Playground with my Humanoids.
These are such a fun set, very quirky and perfect (I think) for the dreaded masculine card.

I started by making my background. This is Brusho's in black and gray. My card was very wet so I squidged it onto another sheet, so now I have two.

When I took my stamp set out I realised how alike my colour palette was. When they design packaging it's always done to make the images look good, so I hoped that I was onto a winner!

I added some background stamping with Stampotique stamps, and stencilled some texture paste stars.

Then I stamped, cut (yawn) and coloured my Katzelkraft Humanoids.  The only problem was, they didn't look right on my 8x8 card, so time for plan B (by which I mean, time to come up with a plan B)

So I chopped up my 8x8, and also used my 'squidge' piece for the front. The sentiment is one of my favourites from Lost Coast/Carmen's Veranda.  I can really relate to this sentiment!

Here it is opened up.

I teamed it with some bright yellow card on the inside, and I'm really happy with the result.
A massive range of these stamps can be found here in Dot's store, and she still has an offer on all Visible Image and Darkroom Door, and selected Lavinia stamps, so check it out and grab yourself a bargain.
Take care and have a very happy week x


  1. That's a fun card, and great how you managed to think of a plan b. Coffee surely helped! The quote might have been written for me - no coffee, no life, no fun! Have a great week, hugs, Valerie
