Your Next Stamp Color Challenge #61

Monster-ous Birthday Wishes

Here is my card for Your Next Stamp's Color Challenge #61!  I've been feeling like I'm on a roll lately.  My creativity has been flowing, and I've been having so much fun designing new cards.  I guess it's a build up from taking a 5 year break after having my babies.

I recently bought the YNS Silly Monsters stamp set and knew it would be the perfect set to use for this color challenge.  I was even more excited about this card when I remembered that I had the Cuttlebug Mini Monsters embossing folder!  After I embossed the white panel with the monster border, I stippled yellow ink in the center.  Next, I stamped various circle images in gray ink (although it pictured more green than gray here) to create a little background for the monster.  Then, I stamped the sentiment in black and traced over it with a Gelly Roll metallic green pen.

For the cute little monster, I colored him with colored pencils and used the Gamsol Magic technique.  Then I fussy cut him out and popped him up with foam squares.

And here's the color challenge:

YNS Silly Monsters stamp set
