Monster Birthday

Birthday cards for kids are always fun to create.  You can use so many fun bright colors, and stamps that are intended for kids are generally much more hilarious.

This fun birthday card, with colorful monsters, was created using the Fun Stampers Journey Eyes on You stamp set, and Birthday Bash Embossing Folder.

For today's card, I started by stamping my three monsters onto Whip Cream card stock.  I colored them in using a LOT of Color Burst pencils - I probably used about half of the colors by the time I finished.  I worked to put a little bit of the coloring from the other characters, into each monster.  So, for instance, the blue monster at the front, has purple shading - and the green monster has purple appendages.  The green monster has orange shoes that are the same tone as the orange monster.  The yellow from the belly of the orange monster, is subtly echoed in the sign, and horns, of the blue monster.  Even though they are different colors, this helps to pull them together to be cohesive in the scene.

This fun birthday card, with colorful monsters, was created using the Fun Stampers Journey Eyes on You stamp set, and Birthday Bash Embossing Folder.
The card is very simple otherwise.  Layered card stock and printed paper, and a few Fashion Silver pieces are all it took to complete the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

Much love,
