Teen Wolf

Hi there! I had a bad night of sleep last night, decided to get productive around midnight, after laying in bed and trying to sleep. I'd been meditating on this new Werewolf stamp that I bought from Inkadinkado recently. When I saw this stamp, I knew I HAD to have it, because I LOVED the movie "Teen Wolf" with Michael J. Fox when I was in junior high! Besides, how many werewolf stamps have you seen out there? None, here... I mean you see vampires, witches, and jack-o-lanterns, but I've never seen a werewolf stamp. And, this guy is SO funny! So, I had been thinking since I got this stamp that I would love to use some brown flocking powder on him, to make him look "furry." BUT, my first attempt didn't exactly go as planned.... 

Uh, I'll let you see for yourself & have a good laugh! ;D
ok, pick yourself back up off the floor and dust yourself off! I know, I know.... UNBELIEVABLY bad! He looks like he's got a bad afro and lamb chop sideburns! heeheehee.... Anyway, after this **DISASTER** I realized I needed a finer tip glue pen than the 2-way glue pen I was using. Then I remembered that I had bought a VERY fine tip glue pen awhile back and never used it. It's called Quickie Glue, and it worked fabulously for this project! Think a ballpoint pen with glue in it. Here's attempt two on "fuzzing up" my werewolf...
MUCH better, wouldn't you agree? The rest of the card is pretty simple. I made the card front with a spooky tree looking paper I found in this mat stack. I punched a large circle from pale yellow cardstock & stamped the sentiment onto it. I thought I needed something in the LR hand corner to balance out the moon and werewolf in the UL hand corner. So, I used a red suede photo corner and a glittery brown brad from my stash, both VERY old, but I think it works, to create balance and tie all the colors together. 
Ok, well that is it for me today! I've got a fun page to show you tomorrow for colourQ! See you then :)

hugs, Noelle
