Determined to join in with Addicted to CAS where the theme is 'Monster' right now, I spotted an unused set of 'monster' stamps here in one of the NBUS boxes - so it would have been rude not to play really!
- 5" x 7"white card blank, tent style
- piece of slightly smaller white card, embossed using one of the Cuttlebug 'Coolio' set of four embossing folders and glued onto the card front
- a stamp from the Woodware 'The Blimps' set, stamped onto white card stock using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink and coloured using Pro markers
- then I die cut a 'Polaroid' frame using the Lil' Inkers 'Instant Camera' die
- stamped the words 'Selfie time' using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink and a stamp from the 'Good to be Bad' set by Clearly Besotted
- then positioned the image how I wanted it behind the frame with one arm 'out of shot', trimmed it to size and stuck it in place using very narrow red line tape
- added the frame with image to the card front
- finally glued a couple of goggly eyes in place
I quite like the 'outer space' feel of the embossing folder - cue spooky Martians music :)
Brilliant monster card, Di. I love how you've put him in the Polaroid frame and the embossing folder you've used is perfect. xxReplyDelete
How cute Di and I can see what you mean about the alternative feel to the embossing folder and it goes beautifully with your cute little green man, and great googly eyes too. xReplyDelete
