Monsters and Such


Thought I'd throw a cute little pink and orange non-Halloween monster out here for everyone today!

I stamped this little guy over pink polka dot patterned paper and then added his horns and bow tie in orange.  The stamp and sentiment are from The Alley Way Stamps and I'll enter it in their inspiration challenge.  The design is from Retro Sketches and I'll also enter this in their challenge.  And, last but certainly not least, since I used snippets for the horns, bow tie, twine, and orange paper I'll also enter him in the challenge over at Pixie's Snippets Playground.


That's it for today and will see everyone on Thursday evening!

Thanks for stopping by.........

HI Lynn,
He is quite a sweet looking monster... and I like his googly eyes. The double twine ribbon and orange/pink colour combo make it rather striking.
Love,

It's always nice to cover more than one challenge at a time. I really love the pick and orange together with the touches of black. I like the diagonal embossing also. Enjoy your day.
