It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge at Shopping Our Stash. This week's theme is loooooove, and we are to make a card for Valentine's Day, or just a plain old Love card.
Here's my card, then I'll explain:
During my recent crafty play date, I stamped and die cut a few of these cuties, so today all I needed to do was color the little guy and figure out how to use him on a card. I started with the heart embossing folder that I may or may not have had to clear of dust. It's probably one of the first embossing folders I ever bought.
Then I thought plain white would be boring, so I took my Distress Tumbled Glass mini cube and touched it to the embossing folder in a few places. When I ran it through the Big Shot, the ink smooshed through and left a little color on the panel.
The blue monstah blended too well with the background, so I played around with some pre-die-cut circles in my stash until I got the combination you see here. I like that the monstah is slopping over the inner white circle, too. I actually did that on purpose!
I had some leftover hearts from a long ago project, so I used a few of them here. They were die-cut from some card stock covered with gold washi tape.
For some finishing touches, I added Enamel Accents to his eyes and some clear Wink of Stella to his tongue. All monstahs have sparkly tongues, don't they?
So if you're making some love cards this week, I think you should pop over to Shopping Our Stash and link up to play along!
Thanks for stopping by!
