It's time to meet the Creatures...

They are finally here! The much-anticipated but so worth waiting for DoodleFactory Creatures II collection from Starving Artistamps is officially released! So now it's time to meet the creatures...

I'll start by introducing you to my favorite, Zed. Zed's a little bit gross but something about him just makes me giggle. Isn't he just the perfect thing to put on a little boy's birthday card? 

I colored my Zed with Copic markers and decorated him up all pretty for Easter.  I should also mention that I sort of CASE'd the layout from this card in the Splitcoast Stampers Fan Club gallery.  I say "sort of" because it was unintentional, but I did browse that gallery back when it opened, so I must have been inspired without really realizing it.  I wonder what else I would find if I really picked my brain.  (I know what you're thinking, "Like Zed's picking his?"  Very funny, people!)

The next little cutie I'd like you to meet is Unger.  Unger is sweet and adorable and loves glitter.  I think it suits her.  But then, who doesn't look good in glitter?

I colored Unger with Copic markers and gave her some Key Lime Art Glitter to wear.  I also used a morphed version of the Corduroy technqiue that our own Tracey Berkey contributed to the latest Technique Junkies Newsletter.  The printed papers on this card are Basic Grey Lime Rickey, and I created my multi-colored sentiment by inking the stamp with markers (water-based dye; not Copic).

All of the creatures come in both a large and small size, and I've used a whole crowd of the little ones on this card.  Meet 'lil Sprat, 'lil Spinkle, 'lil Gumbo, 'lil Clowd, 'lil Zed, and 'lil Unger.  And yes, the sentiment is supposed to be upside down.  It would be so normal and so boring if it wasn't. These are also colored with Copic markers and the papers on this card are Basic Grey Sugar Rush.

Believe it or not, there are still some creatures that I haven't introduced to you.  To see all of the new additions to the DoodleFactory and a bazillion more fabulous cards, be sure to visit the following places:  Starving Artistamps,  the Starving Artistamps Design Team blogs (links are in my left sidebar), and the Starving Artistamps Company blog.  Oh yeah, and if you leave a comment on the company blog telling which creature you like best, you could win the entire set!  What are you waiting for?  Get on over there!
