There's another great inspiration photo and sketch on the Fusion Card Challenge blog today! You can just use the sketch or just be inspired by the photo or, you can do both as I did for my card! Well, you can see I tweaked the sketch a wee bit - lol! I was definitely inspired by the primary colors, the stacking of crates and that adorable little monster on the top shelf! Our grandson turns two next month and this was the perfect scenario for me to create his birthday card!
I started with a panel of Ranger watercolor paper and "stamped" the stripes using an acrylic block (SU) and distress inks. It left a mottled rather than solid look which I actually liked better. I then colored up these cute monster images with Copics and have them "holding" a bitty banner die. I added googly eyes and sparkle to the monster dots with a Gelly Roll Clear Star pen by Sakura. Photos never do sparkle justice like it looks in real life! The sentiment was stamped twice using my MISTI (a must have tool for me in nearly every card!).
Here is my enabler's list...
STAMPS: Monsterous (Reverse Confetti), Number of Years (Stampin' Up).
PAPER: Ballet Blue (SU), White (PTI), Ranger watercolor CS; Silver glitter CS.
INK: Blueprint Sketch, Carved Pumpkin, Twisted Citron, Candied Apple distress inks; Versafine Onyx Black.
DIES: Monsterous and Gift Card Holder Tag (Reverse Confetti), Numbers (MFT).
