PIO #30 - Anything Goes

It's "Anything Goes" for our challenges at Pile It On this week and we've got Hambo Stamps for our sponsor.   I had never checked out the Hambo web site before they sponsored us, Because I like funny cards I check out the details on the ones that get my intention.  Most of the funny pig images I see are from Hambo so I am really happy to have a chance to work with a Hambo image.  It was really difficult to pick just one image so I guess I'll be headed back to the Hambo store for some shopping.

This image is "Monster Yell" and it looks like I often feel, if you're married with children you know what I mean.   

In case you can't tell from the photo the teeth and nails are covered with glossy accents and her spots are covered with stickles.  Because i thought of this monster as female I colored her pink but I think the monster will look good in any color scheme.  I can picture her in reds and greens for a Christmas card.  Then there's the recipients favorite colors or how about a child's school colors.  It's a very versatile image and I think it could be used for a card for an adult or child, masculine or feminine.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Hambo "Monster Yell" digi
ink - printer
paper - CloseTo My Heart "Dream Pop"
miscellaneous - copics; My Favorite Things "Decorative Doily" and "Fishtail Flags Stax" die-namics; bling; dew drops; stickles; machine stitching
