I got this super little guy a little while ago but couldn't decide what to do with him. I printed him on white card, coloured him with Copic markers and fussy cut him out. I came across the new challenge at Left of Centre - LOC#53 where the theme is fireworks/celebration and I decided to make a birthday card with party lights, fireworks and that gremlin causing trouble! The layout is based on this week's sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch! - CTS#99. I cut a strip of design paper to go down the side of the card, I like the elegant damask pattern, sort of like wallpaper! Then I stamped some fireworks exploding in the background, added my little gremlin wrapped in lights and finished with a sentiment. On the inside I cut a mat layer of teal card and stamped more fireworks and a birthday greeting on the white card.
One of the things I really like about Rick's images is that even the scary monsters are kinda cute! On this card the monster is just a tiny bit scary - the bright colours and birthday theme make him sweet. But if I decided to make him really scary I'd just need change up the background. You can get this image (and many others) at Rick's Zibbet store - check it out and have fun!
I've got a really busy day lined up - a trip to the hair dresser, to the shops for new pillows and then the supermarket for food. Oh yes, there's washing and ironing too! Bye for now - see you soon.
