Four monster cards

CR00234 monster

One of our neighbours asked if I could make her a handful of birthday cards as she had a bunch of birthdays coming up. Typical of such requests, there wasn’t a lot (well, any) more detail, so I had to wing it a bit.

Knowing that her tastes swing more to amusing rather than pretty and wanting to keep the design fairly simple (just in case I completely missed the mark), I decided to colour up the fluffy monster digis created by Birka and Jessa and layer them over some embossed stars.

For a change, I coloured them with the Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers and added highlights with white pen. Sentiments from the oh so handy Crazy Talk set were heat embossed in white on black card.
