TESC80 - Monster Mash
THEY DID THE MASH, THEY DID THE MONSTER MASH...
I had some time today to play so I thought I would play along with this weeks TESC over on Taylor's Blog
I found this adorable Monster stamp (Studio G) in the $1 bin at JoAnn's and couldn't resist using it for this card. The stamp actually has a sentiment (Our Little Monster) on the side but I masked that off as I only wanted to use the monster by itself for my card. I stamped my monster twice on WW cs and once on some DP (SU-Ghostly Greetings-retired)and paper pieced his coat. He was colored with Prisma color pencils. I also cut his hair out and raised it up with mounting tape. I masked him off using Eclipse Tape and sponged Summer Sun ink around him and layered him onto Only Orange cs. and added 2 small purple button brads and some stitching on the side with black thread. His bolts were colored with a Silver Spica Glitter pen.
I added another piece of the Ghostly Greetings DP along with a punched spiderweb border and some stripped ribbon. This was layered to a fun and funky plaid (Karen Foster) and I stamped the sentiment (also Studio G and a $1 bin find at JoAnns)with Versamark and embossed with Black EP. This was layered to Lovely Lilac and Basic Black.
I'm thinking of giving this one to my hubby for Halloween this year.
