Pollycraft Freebie - 'Gorgeous'

Morning people! I have something exciting to share with you today! We're previewing a new digi image over at Pollycraft..

I would like you all to meet..


What else could Paula possibly have called him?! LOL!! My Gorgeous is "snot" coloured. I've made this card for my little cousin, he's nine soon.. obviously.. and I guess this image and the colour ;) is just perfect!!

I have used a Kraft cardbase which I have watermarked with some other monster images from a Hero Arts stamp set. My sentiment is from the same set and stamped in Memento - Tuxedo Black ink. The papers I've used are from MME Lil' Robots collection and I have distressed the edges with Frayed Burlap DI and added faux stitching using a green fineliner.

I have coloured gorgeous using PM's and added some Diamond Stickles to his teeth! LOL. I've fussy cut him out and added him to the card using dimensional adhesive. I die cut a '9' using my MM Slice and added it to the top banner and again added Diamond Stickles for some added personalisation!

I would like to enter Gorgeous into these challenges:
