Monster - hi


I created this card for the card challenge #16 on the Paper Popsicles blog. Amy created a sketch to inspire us. I also used a digital image from the Paper Popsicles store. This digital image is called "little monsters", and this is just one of the two monsters that you get with the digital image. Isn't he cute? I used new papers that I got in my Sassafras warehouse box! I used colored pencils and gamsol on the monster and added some googly eyes for fun! The "hi" metal pieces and the button are both Making Memories. The blue card base has been Cuttlebug embossed with swiss dots. I also added machine stitching. My bobbin ran out on the bottom of the card, and then the stiching got messed up, but you're not supposed to notice that! This card is very distressed and roughed up, so the bad sewing mishap kinda works here! This is a card I would give my nephew! Seems totally boy and crazy to me!!

Tomorrow, I will be posting some awesome cards that I created with a NEW set from The Cutting Cafe'. It's a secret . . . but I just might be giving the set away!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend! I will be enjoying the three-day Labor Day weekend for sure! Thanks for stopping by!
