Hello Everyone! Liliuska here and I have a Monster Birthday Card to share with you today. And I also made a matching Tag. I combined images from Whimsical Town stamp set and Monster Bash stamp set to create a scene.
Do you ever start with a plan and can’t follow it? As I was stamping images and deciding what mediums I will use to colour my images, I was planning on a very simple card, and a quick one, too. Well, guess what, I got carried away and ended up not only stamping a whole lot of cute monsters and pretty buildings, but also cutting out masks for all of them. And so instead of creating a quick and simple card I have a whole scene. I have to admit I do like it a lot, especially all the sparkles…
First I stamped three monsters on a panel I die cut with a die from Dotted Patterns Set 3. This set my latest favourite and I don’t even put these dies away I use them so often. After stamping the monsters I covered them with masks and started stamping buildings. I covered all stamped images with masks (I did get carried away lol) and started working on the background. I used distress inks in blue and purple shades to make this intense night sky. To brighten it up a little I added some splashes with white and golden shimmer pens. And once I did that I knew right away what else did my scene need after I coloured all the images with alcohol markers. A lot of sparkle! I used Nuvo Crystal Glaze on couple roofs, monsters’ eyes and one of the monster’s head. I used Nuvo Glitter Drops to cover a star-shaped sentiment and couple roofs. I also used a clear glitter pen to highlight some small details on whimsical buildings.
Once everything was dry, I foam mounted the sentiment and three monsters. And since I coloured more monsters than I needed, I decided to add one inside of the card.
I couldn’t resist making a matching tag. Usually I make two cards that look similar, and are different at the same time. Lately I am into making matching tags. I just can’t get enough of that cute tag from Dotted Patterns Set 3. Here’s my little tag with a scene.
Thank you for stopping by! Hope you were inspired by my today’s projects!
