It takes all sorts...


I’ve been having fun with those monsters again! There’s something very cheering about these little fellas and I thought I’d have another play with them, just in case they ended up on the retiring list (thankfully, they didn’t!).

It all really started with the goggly eyes – and it amused me to put eyes of different sizes on this monster. I stamped him twice – once onto the Whisper White cardstock and once onto a scrap of Designer Series Paper. His tongue is stamped on another scrap of Designer Paper and cut out. Yes, cut out! (I don’t do fiddly stuff, so this is quite a feat for me.) I’m trying to use up my vast stash of Designer Paper before it all retires at the end of September – but these little bits have barely dented the “problem”.

I coloured the arms and legs using marker, stamped the balloon and hand-drew (badly) a string. I might add a scribble of pale marker under his feet, too, to give him some ground to stand on.

And here’s another, similar, card that started out the same but went “different”.
