Happy Birthday Monsters (03/23/2015)

Birthdays are so much fun! And, a gang of monsters makes it even better :) Check out a card full of silly monsters:

I used Lawn Fawn's Monster Mash to make the monster party. I stamped and masked the monsters so I could group them together. After they were all stamped, I colored them with Copics and also used a white pen to add some texture on a monster or two. I masked them all up and distressed inked the background. I cut the panel out of Lawn Fawn's Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables, and then matted it with black cardstock. 

I wanted a bit more color, so I created a stenciled background with a circle dot stencil, inspired by Kristina Werner's "Easy Layered Flowers with Copic Colors" blog post. I layered a circle stencil over kraft cardstock, then used several colors of Distress Inks and ink blending tools to add ink to the card. After this, I shifted the stencil slightly, then used my white gel pen to add circle outlines over the colored circles. 

 Every birthday party needs a balloon, so I also used Lawn Fawn's Party Balloons die cuts and cut out a star-shaped balloon and stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment on it from Lawn Fawn's Bake Me a Cake set, and a balloon string. I covered the balloon with some high-gloss glue to give it some shine.

 I added the balloon to the middle monster, and the card was done! So silly :)

Thanks for stopping by, have a magical day!
