The Monstah Bash



A Bellarific birthday bash that is! Happy Bellarific Friday everyone! It's not really any of the babe's birthdays, but this week's challenge was to use any Stamping Bella stamp in any way that you wanted. That's right folks...it's a free form challenge :D

Ever since Stamping Bella released this Monstah Bash image, I have wanted it :) These little monsters just make me smile! These fun little characters have brought along the glitter confetti and a very special blue balloon just for today's challenge ;) They have been dressed in their best vibrant colours using tombows and a water brush and stand amongst a sponged backdrop and some chalked shadows. Not only are they dressed in their best vibrant colours but the yellow cutie in the middle wore his freckles and that's a big thing because he's usually the shy one of the bunch ;)




Due to the Bella herself being at CHA next week, there will not be a Bellarific Friday challenge and instead, Emily will be trying to post some updates over at Bloggabella. Speaking of blogging...have you seen the sneak peeks of the new stamps? *swoon* Click on over to Bloggabella and take a lookie lou :D

Thanks for coming by and I hope that your day is less rainy than mine! I swear that someone is going to need to build and Arc for my family and my stamps soon....
