PTT April Challenge--Happy Birthday Monster!

Hey, hey, hey! Today starts a new "Anything Goes" challenge at Party Time Tuesdays, so get out your stamps, adhesive, and markers and join us in the fun!  

I made this birthday card for my son who had a monster themed party and to be quite honest, it's not a new creation of mine, but it is new to you. I have been wanting to share it because I think it's absolutely adorable and was a big hit with my kiddo.


How can you look at this and not smile?! 

The monster and balloons were cutting files that I purchased from the Silhouette store.   Before assembling him, I wanted to add some depth to his body, so I inked the edges in Peeled Paint Distress Ink.  I wasn't sure if I liked it at first, but it grew on me quickly.  I liked that it made him look a little dirty and disheveled.  I feel like monsters should have a level of untidiness to their appearance, so it worked well LOL I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder on his chest and on the white background, then added some purple Distress Ink.  I pieced the monster together, added googly eyes, then attached him to the card with an Action Wobbler.  The balloons are adhered using pop dots and I used black floss for the strings. 

That about does it for today! Thanks for stopping by :)  Don't forget to head over to Party Time Tuesdays to join us in this month's challenge!
