A Quick Lil' Monster

I've been busy this week working on some design team stuff and also some magazine calls, so I haven't posted any of my current projects in a few days.
This little card was made for a SCS sketch challenge - but I wanted to post it here too. These monster stamps from Green Grass Stamps are soooo cute - and I'm not usually into cute stamps! I colored him with Prisma Pencils that I got from Kim at My Favorite Things - the colors are blended together with baby oil.
Does anyone else have an incredible amount of designer paper scraps out there???? I use so much deisgner paper that I'm always tucking away the leftovers for "something" - it's now time to come up with that something!!! Any suggestions on great projects to use scrap designer paper for???
Thanks for looking!

Love your little monster, I have seen these stamps they are so cute. Designer paper, oh my, have tons of it. How about a scrap swap, that would be fun, would not get rid of the scaps but would replace it with new ones.

I use my designer paper scraps for making gift tags ... Birthday, christmas, valentines - whatever! I also use them on ATC's. But I do have so many its crazy.

Oh thats just TOO adorable!!
Extra scraps?
*Cut into strips and weave them together for a background mat.
*Use for paper-piecing.
*Iris folding.
*Put glue onto paper and just start laying down pieces of scraps, any old way, laying some across each other if need be, Crazy Quilt style.

I love to hear that you also use baby oil I had heard of it once or twice and found that I like it way more than I do the gamsol and it is much cheaper every penny counts when you want more stamps!!!!! love the card I have wanted the monster stamps for a long time but never got them for myself!!!!
