PS SPARKS - Anything Goes!

I've CASEd myself - this fun frame card that I made a few weeks ago just had to be re-tried. I had one more sheet of that fun paper, after all. I've also realized over the last few weeks that the Memento ink smudging when I coloured wasn't because I was using patterned paper, but because the humidity is so high. Luckily we are starting to get some relief there - even with a dehumidifier running 24 hours a day, my envelopes are sealing (no!!!) and paper warping (nooooo!!!!).

Well how's that for an aside? Anyhow, it was cooler/drier so I decided to try the design again. I used a horizontal layout to change it up a bit, and once again just went for the stamp sets within reach, not particularly planning - but I ended up using 9! I also had to go pick up some more googly eyes :)


Supplies: Amy Tangerine patterned paper; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Bic Markers; assorted googly eyes; and the following Paper Smooches stamp sets:
Chit Chat, Birthday Buddies, Zoo Crew, Party Posse, A Little Lovin', Chubby Chums, Little Fella, My Peeps, Woofers + Tweeters

This just makes me happy, all those crazy little faces! Of course I'm linking up in the last minutes of the current PS SPARKS challenge, "Anything Goes." 

xoxo,
Jessi

ETA: I'm also popping this in Savannah's MASKING challenge over at Do More With Less! Thanks, Sav!
