Friendly monsters

Lots of people find monsters scary, but to me they are not! I find them mostly funny and adorable and they make me SMILE!

I’m so glad that So Artful Challenges focuses on ‘friendly monsters’ this month. Here’s my ATC (the colours are a bit brighter in person, especially the neon pink):

I used stamps and spray inks by Dylusions.

I hope this friendly monster made you smile!

 

Humour

I love ATCs with a wink, so Stampotique Designers Challenge # 141 ‘Humour’ is right up my alley!

ATC_Fabulous

The quirky Stampotique images match really well with the funny sentiments by Dylusions, don’t you think?

I used Dylusions sprays, Derwent pencils, Distress stickles, silver embossing powder.

I’d also like to enter this atc into the ‘Anything goes’ challenge (#45) currently running at the Kreativer Bastel Blog.

Thanks for looking!

 

 

Jack Skellington

Some people find it hard to create masculine cards, but for me the opposite is actually true… I had lots of fun creating this masculine ATC featuring a big fan of Jack Skellington!

It’s my entry for:

 

ATC_JackSkeleton

I used structure paste and distress inks to create the brick wall background and stamped (& altered) and coloured the images. The sentiment is computer generated.

Stamps used

  • Smile: Stampotique
  • Frame: Stamp Francisco
  • Jack Skellington: Stamp It Crazy

 

Odd bird

Here’s my odd bird for the Three Muses.  As you can see, I took this challenge quite literally. 🙂

For my background I sponged several colours distress ink and and sprayed it with water.  The border was stamped with scraps of unmounted rubberstamps and highlighted using a white gelpen. For the bird I combined an Arstitic stamper bird, the legs of  Stampotique’s “Moth Fab” and a hat by Scrollswork. The words are by Stampcamp.
