Sorry about the song, I couldn't resist. *wink* Happy Monday, y'all! What's up? It has rained all day here...so once I got home from work I decided to take advantage of the calm day to do a little stamping! Fun!
I started this card for Cindy's Dare to Get Dirty sketch and Michelle's Challenge to make a masculine card, and ended up adding things for 3 more DTGD challenges. YAY ME! *grin*
Monstah Bash stamp from Stamping Bella, which was stamped in Memento on Bella's Bestest Paper and colored with Copic Markers. I cut the image out with Nestabilities and added an extra black layer so the image would pop. I decided to stitch the balloon string with crochet thread for another challenge, and popped up the balloon on a dimensional. I also added some funky spots on the orange monster using my Liquid Applique and colored it with a blue Copic marker...so fun! The patterned paper I chose was from the Basic Grey Cupcake collection, and I cut it into four squares and stitched around the edges after matting them in black. For the sentiment, I stamped the It's a Purse Thing sentiment in Memento Black, then cut the words apart. Then I replaced the word "purse" for the word "RAWRR" which was stamped with my Karen Foster Snap Stamps. The white cardstock didn't stand out too much against the pattern, so I inked the edges in black ink. Much better! A quick and fun card, but I really like how it turned out. I think it will make a great boy birthday card, don't you?
Ok, well, I'm headed back into my stamp room to play some more...you might want to check out the latest Bellariffic Friday sketch on Em's blog, as well as a sneekie peek of a new image...ACK! She's CUUUUUUUUUTEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!
I'll be back later...have a fun day!
