Halloween Monster

What a perfect day for a bike ride.  I'm back to my Sunday ride---though I'm not doing my hill ride quite yet!  I'm on the mend from my cough so it felt good to go for a ride.  Especially since my busy day yesterday.  Starting with the Lion King show, then the Stanford Football Game and ending with a fun Thai dinner!  Had to work off the sitting and eating!

I'm excited enter a card into the Your Next Stamp Challenge #22.  This time, I'm going with the sketch challenge...and using my favorite stamp set---Silly Monsters, which is just perfect for a Halloween theme!

Here is my take on the sketch....

Whenever I use this stamp set, I always like to have dots around since most of the monsters have dots on them---no exception for my Halloween themed card.

I colored the monster with Copic markers, after heat embossing the monster.  I also heat embossed candies on the black strip on the very top---as well as my senitment which I'm using in place of the bow.

I die cut the circles and used the inlayed technique--which I like to use as it doesn't add bulk to the card, but gives a nice finished look.

A very fun card to make, and I like how it turned out!

  1. This is just adorable! LOVE all the bright colored dots!

  2. What a cutie - he definitely looks like he is waiting for candy! All the circles look great together and the sentiment works well in place of the bow on the sketch. Thanks for joining in challenge #22 at YNS and sharing your fun take on the sketch!!!
