Monstah Birthday

Hi all,

Happy Monday! (OK, that was a little sarcastic,as I have dark bags under my eyes.)

Well, to cheer myself up, I am playing with one of my new images from Stamping Bella, which I LOVE: Monstah Bash!  Just look at those little furballs!  They are really ready to celebrate someone's birthday with their bright red balloon!

I stamped the image two times on Bella's Bestest Paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I cut one of them out with Rectangle Nesties, and sponged some Old Olive ink inside the stencil.  I also spritzed that with an Old Olive marker and my color spritzing tool for a fun splatter effect. 
For the second copy of the image, I coloured them with Copics, cut them out, and mounted them on with foam dots for some dimension.  That rectangle was matted with black CS.

The base is Basic Gray CS, and the green patterned paper is from Crate Paper, with a black mat.  I added some black gingham ribbon around that base layer, tied with a knot.  Underneath the image layer, I added a piece of Real Red textured CS, and I added a metal-rimmed tag to the lower corner with the sentiment, and some Distress ink sponged.

You still have time to send Emily your card with flowers for this week's Bellarific Friday on the Bella Blog.  Don't forget!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
