Three Little Monsters

Hi Everyone,

My poor blog is getting a bit neglected! But today I do have something to share - I've created three ATCs today to join in with the current Paperartsy blog challenge.

The challenge this fortnight is Diecuts - check out all the info HERE

Here is what I made:

I used some Prima scrapbook papers as my base - I cut eight out to get the double layer:

Used Lindy's sprays and a scraping of white gesso to colourise them:

I used a Sizzix Tim Holtz die set to cut three different patterns out of the Orange-y coloured ATCs, unfortunately one of my cards got stuck in the die and ripped so I carried on to only make the three cards.

And forgot to take any more photos........again!

But never mind, I layered up the die cut card over the blue-ish card.

Then did some over stamping using Paperartsy ELB29 and 30 and also one sentiment is from Hot Picks set HP1601.

I stamped out the three little monsters from the newest Paperartsy designer - Elena Zinski - they are from set ZA01.

I used the Prima tropicals watercolours set the colour them, then fussy cut them and stuck them onto my ATCs. The tallest monster didn't fit so I just cut his shoes and hands out and hand drew in his arms and legs.

Here are the individual cards:

I added some grey shading here and there and edged the cards with black ink to give them a frame.

Pretty happy with how these turned out as I don't usually make ATCs but just thought I would have a go today :-)

And some final piccys:

Thanks for visiting!
