C4C237: Besties

Hello! It is the weekend and I have an extra day or so off from work so it is a nice long weekend. Yay! Maybe I will get caught up on a couple of projects around the house? Or maybe not. LOL. First project of the weekend is my take on this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges challenge.


And it is a great one to use the following color scheme (one of my favorites!):


I did sneak in a bit of other color in the background behind the monsters. I’m so bad! ;) Speaking of that background, I created it by flipping over the die cut panel and adhering washi tape over the opening. This means the sticky side will be facing up after flipping the panel back over. I then applied Fine Clear Distress Glitter to the sticky washi tape to create a colorful glittery background.


The little monsters were paper pieced with some designer paper and trimmed. Remaining white spits were colored with Copic markers. The monsters and the matching sentiment are from the Love Monsters stamp set from Taylored Expressions. I used a square die and the Gift Card Frame die (also TE) to cut out the turquoise panel. Sentiment was stamped on a chat bubble that was cut out using the Delightful Day Conversation Bubbles (TE).

I’m in love with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush so after assembling the main panel I gave the monsters a quick coating.

I also spattered the kraft background with a bit of Fresh Lime Dylusions Ink Spray. A few black enamel dots and some sewing finished the card.
