Monica sent me a little "thumbthing"...

Last month I got a surprise package from Monica over at Hambo. Inside were these two stamps and a challenge to create something using only them. I came up with a few projects using these, plus some other Hambo goodies that I'll be sharing with you all week!

So here's what I came up with for my first little "thumbthing" to share. What do you think?
To make the bats, I stamped the thumbprint with black ink and then used a Sharpie to draw the wings and ears. Everything is cuter with googlie eyes right? So I had to add some of those too.
The cobweb background was made with the new Cuttlebug embossing folder that I picked up at "Little C's". I embossed it onto black cardstock and then brayered over it with Stampin Up white craft ink.

If you want to order these adorable images for yourself, you can find them in the "Funny Sayings" section here.
Thumbprint: Item #0709
Thumb Sentiment: Item #1510

Plus, as an added bonus, Monica has been VERY generous and offered a special promotion for my readers! All you have to do is go to the Hambo website and enter Promo code "ScramperStalker" at checkout to receive 15% off your entire order for this whole week!

very cool, my kids make these guys all the time from a book with their own thumb prints- so much better not have to ink up your thumb

Your bats are so CUTE, and the googlie-eyes are just perfect with them. You did a GREAT job on this challenge - I LOVE it!! Thanks for playing along -- I can't wait to see your other projects. :)

Wow brayering over dry embossing, I do not think I would have thought of that!

I can not wait until my Big Shot comes and I can start using the cuttlebug embossing folders!
