Don't worry. Be happy ....

I made this cute tag using Whisker Monster with Sign by Stampotique : 
 The background is painted with acrylics and I also used Lindys Stamp Gang Moon Shadow Ink. The blue spots are embossed. The gorgeous little monster is stamped in Stazon ink, painted with acrylic paint and then using a stamp-a-ma-jig, he is stamped again to add the detail back in :) I used a white gel pen for his eyes and teeth. Close up of him : 
The "Don't worry, be happy" is his New Years resolution, and as such am entering this into the Stampotique Designers challenge #177, set by the super talented and lovely Claudine. I am VERY happy, and honoured to be chosen amongst the top 3 for this challenge - Yay.

If you notice my little monster is standing on a washi tape. I used washi tape for grounding things quite a lot, stops the illusion of them floating in space. So I am also entering this into the Tag Along Challenge #71.

Thanks for stopping by x


  1. Never thought to use acrylic to colour in a stamp. Love how it turned out. Another great tip! Thanks

  2. This is wonderful, Nikki ! Love the colour combination and the sentiment is one we should all live by ! !
