Monstrously Awesome!

Happy Monday everyone!  I'm trying to start the week off on a super positive note.  It certainly helps that I got to spend some time playing in my craft room this weekend!  I hope you had a chance to craft a little bit too.

I am back to share another project for the Jess Crafts Digitals Design Team.  I am having a lot of fun coloring up Jess's super adorable stamps.  Have you had a chance to take a look at her Etsy shop? You can find it here: Jess Crafts Shop.  The stamp I am using today is from Monster Mash.

Isn't this monster just so adorable???  And with the variety of sentiments that Jess includes with the set, he can be used for many different occasions.  He happens to coordinate very nicely with the monsters on my paper.  The paper is from Doodlebug and is part of the Monster Mania collection. I'm not sure if it's still available but I have been hording it in my stash.  I'm so happy I finally found the perfect image to use with it!

I colored my little one-eyed cutie using my copic markers.  I used BG02, BG05 and BG07.  I simply *had* to add glossy accents to the eye.  I hand cut him out and went around the edges with a black marker.  I used foam tape to pop him up on the white layer.  The white layer is cut out using a die from MFT Stamps.  I sponged around the edges with a little teal ink and adhered it to the gray layer.  I also inked around the edges of the gray piece.  The green polka dot piece comes from a petite prints pad also from Doodlebug.  Patterned pieces were glued on to a teal piece.  I went around the edges with a little sandpaper to give it some texture.  This was all adhered to piece of gray cardstock and finally onto a white card base.

The final step I was really excited about was that I used my Minc to apply a pretty teal foil to my sentiment!  Yes, I may have even been a little giddy about how pretty it was when I pulled off the cover sheet!
