Monster hugs

This is my first monster card and I loved making it along with my son.

I am Playing along with a couple of challenges with this card:

  1. The sketch is based on Freshly made Sketches Challenge #309
  2. The colors are based on cas color and sketch challenge #245
  3. The monster theme is inspired by the Less is more challenge #351

For this card we used the monster stampset by Mudra stamps. We first stamped our fav monsters on neenah solar white card stock with memento black ink and then colored those adorable monsters with copic markers.

The red one was colored by my son and the other two were colored by me.  Then came the fun part of sticking the googly eyes on the monsters which adds so much interest. I used the image colored by my son to decorate my craft table (its a cute reminder of the fun we had together).

Then i took a white card stock and embossed it with an embossing folder. I also white heat embossed the sentiment on a strip of navy card stock.

To finish the card i stuck all the elements in place using foam tape for dimension.

I always wanted to try this smooshing techniques (i don’t even know if its called that) with distress inks. I gave it a try today and oh what a fun thing it is to do. So simple yet such lovely results. I just used blue and yellow and loved how the green was formed in between.

This cute lil penguin seems to be on my dream holiday, on the beach under the tree with a cooler in its hand. Hmmm… somethings are still missing though – a hammock , a good book and a craft table by the side. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all had a magical craft table and the moment we wanted to craft all we had to do was to snap our fingers and Abracadabra – your craft table is right in front of you. What do you Say?

Whenever i make a beach card my soul floats back to GOA. I absolutely love that place, the sandy beaches, the cool lifestyle, the music, the food, the picturesque drives, Goan Homes, the people… All i want to do there is just Chill!
My dad was in the Indian Navy so all through my life i was lucky to have lived in various coastal places in India like – Mumbai, Visakhapatnam, Port Blair … I have finally settled in Visakhapatnam, which is a coastal city in Andhra Pradesh. There is something mesmerizing about water; I just love being in it, be it the ocean, lake, river , swimming pool or just a tub. My son too has started enjoying in the water and loves to swim.
