I was going through my stamp stash and came across this fun set of little monsters and it reminded me that I hadn't yet played along with the current Addicted to CAS challenge - ATCAS#100, where the cue word is MONSTER!! I used the colours from Colour Q Challenge - cQc#367. The cue word over at CASology - CAS#223 is TEAM and I think our family is a team, albeit a weird one!!
I stamped the little monsters in versamark on watercolour card, heat embossed them with gold powder and painted them with Zig brushes. I cut them out and added some sparkle with a clear Wink of Stella brush. I added a strip of gold washi along the bottom of the card, stamped the words and then adhered the monsters. On the inside I cut a mat layer of olive card and on the white panel added another little monster and a sentiment.
I think these little monsters really do work to represent us - Jonathan, me and Kat here in the States, and Ben on the inside over in the UK. I think he'll like this one a lot!!
Before I go, I must say a loud THANK YOU to the team over at Less is More. I've been playing along with the challenge since it started - granted not every week, but I do try. I'm constantly amazed and awed by the wonderful cards that I see on the blog and this week I was lucky enough to be one of the winners with my sparkly Christmas Wreath card! I'm absolutely thrilled to bits. Thanks again!
