Pile it On #25 - Oddball Stamps - Kawaii/Cute

Today we have a fabulous new challenge here at Pile It On! We want to see a Kawaii/Cute theme to your project.
I didn't know what Kawaii was but Wiki does and here is the Wiki definition of Kawaii
We are sponsored by a new sponsor to our challenge and that is Oddball Stamps
They have a great prize of 3 single digital stamps from the Oddball Art Store

Oddball Art by Lizzy Love: Growing up a child of the 80's, pop rocks princess, with an extreme fondness for anything candy coated, Kawaii Kitten & Ziggy Stardust, all of which had a major influence in the work that I am creating today. I employ many different mediums when I create, anything from mixed media painting to sewing with many different textiles, the end result always being the same; A whimsical dream world filled with big eyed beauties, creepy little cuties and quirky monsters of all shapes and sizes.

So now it's over to you and to get you going we have a fabulous set of samples from our team.
