I decided today was a great day to post the following card because of all the yummy treats and dishes that will be consumed in honor of a football game. We do like our traditions, don't we! Here's my card:
I bought this stamp set because I don't have many children-appropriate themed stamps and wanted to beef up my meager supply. I thought this monster was cute and friendly, not scary. This would make a perfect shaker card with a window in the stomach, but I decided to go back to watercolor pencils and coloring. I used watercolor paper, watercolor pencils for color and my blender pen to blend the color a bit. If you're wondering where I found that background Designer Series Paper, it is from the "Party Animal" set. Isn't it cute with the cake, forks and candles! I did hand cut out the monster, rather quickly, and not with any eye to perfect edges. I guess nothing everything can come with a perfectly shaped framelit, right?
I hope you are enjoying my blog and the ideas I'm throwing at you for your inspiration. My cards are designed with an eye to being accessible to any level of crafter, not too detailed to bog down and not extremely layered to end up un-mailable. A certain level of "cuteness" also helps!
Have a great weekend and see you back Monday!
