Monster Birthday by Amanda Southern


Hi Everyone

I have a birthday card for you this week and this one I have made is for one of the little people in my life, my youngest niece.

Here’s what I Did:

Starting with a piece of stamping card I stamped the small monster at the front of this group, I then masked it off with masking gum and stamped the 2 monsters that would be standing behind it. I then stamped the clouds and masked them off. All of this stamping was them masked off with the masking gum. To create the background I sectioned off sunbeam strips and coloured them with Distress inks moving from a darker shade in the centre to lighter towards the outside.

To give them some grounding I stencilled through a dots stencil with different shades of green distress inks.

I then removed all the masking gum and coloured the monsters using Prima water colours applying them with a waterbrush and a touch of coloured pencil.

I added my monster sentiment which is from my stash, then I matted it onto yellow card and an 8” x 8” card blank.

I then decided to add a little something to the inside of the card and stamped another little monster inside to finish it off.

What I Used:

PaperArtsy Stamp Sets - Elenazinski Art ZA01 and ZN05
Distress Inks - Yellows and Greens
Monster Sentiments from my stash
Yellow Card
Card Blank

Have a fabulous week
