Happy Saturday, everyone! I thought I'd share a card with you today! I've been playing around with the Monster Mash stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop. It's so adorable! I can't get enough of it! :) The grouchy monster, the happy one, and the little baby monsters! Ah! So cute!
I made a card base from Neenah 110 lb Solar White cardstock and cut a piece of paper to cover the entire card front. Alas, I'm not sure where the paper is from. I bought it years ago at A.C. Moore and I cut of the tear strip with the manufacturer's name on it. :(
Next, I stamped one of each of the monsters on Neenah Solar White cardstock using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Then I used my BIC markers and a colorless blender pen to color in the little monsters. I didn't use any fancy coloring techniques...just two pens for each color - a light and a dark. I started with the lighter color and colored the whole area and then took the darker pen and traced around the edges of the area I wanted to color and then used the lighter color to blend out the darker color. I used my colorless blender pen to make the polka dots on the "adult" monsters.
I cut them out with my Cutter Bee scissors. I used foam tape to adhere them to the card. The little monster is adhered with a double layer of foam tape.
I stamped the sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp set (Friendship Messages) onto Solar White cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. The sentiment is actually one long sentiment, but I cut it in half so that it would fit a little better. I used my scissors to trip the paper into a banner shape.
I thought the card needed a little bit more....something! Have you ever been there? You look at the card and know it needs something more? Anyway, I pulled out my black enamel dots and added a few here and there to the card.
Thanks for hanging out with me today! I'll be back soon!
