Eyeball soup anyone??

Did the title of my post grab your attention enough? Bwahaha!! I hoped it would;)
I'm back from a few days hiatus...I've had a wee bit of a cough/cold and the headaches have been ridiculous, so stamping was put on the backburner:( But I managed to grind this little goodie out for ya! It's a fabulous sketch by Mercy and I am lovin this one! It's one I know I'm going to use in the future....ah, I loves me a good sketch...This is also a TCPTUES128 challenge for the coveted position of swanky stamper of the month..doesn't that sound like a fun title to have?? I would practically feel like royalty if I could call myself that;) Haha!
Now, the challenge over at The Cats Pyjamas was to use PJ the Bear, and I only have one PJ and used him/her for the last TCPTUES challenge, so here we are again with another bear:) This time I tried to mix it up a little and so I coloured my PJ purple and made a halloween card.

I stamped her and cut her out after colouring with Copics. I popped her up on a sponged nestie that I framed with black CS and black lace that I ruffled around the nestie. I paper peiced the apron and added some tinsel glitter to the apron strings. I drew in some eyeballs with my copic multiliner and coloured the brew a slimy green. The steam is sponged green and srickles added and the eyeballs have crystal effects applied. I also coloured the cup and saucer with a clear spica glitter pen. Pj's nose and eyes also have a coating of CE.

I stitched around the panels with black thread on my sewing machine and added a black rhinesone to each outer corner.
The panel size is definately 'off' from the sketch, but thats the way the cookie crumbles sometimes;) lol

Thanks for dropping by!
