The image for this month’s progressive challenge on the Limited Runs Digital Stamps Facebook page is a fun grinning monster/alien. I decided to give him his own planet to enjoy!
Limited Runs Digital Stamps – Smiling Monster
X-Press It card
white gel pen
A5 card blank
The smiling monster is printed out on X-Press It card and coloured with Copics then fussy cut.
I printed out the greeting text on an A5 piece of X-Press It card then drew in the background and coloured with Copics. (I have to admit this was a leap out my comfort zone because I am not an artist). The white stars are added with a white gel pen.
Having coloured the sky I discovered that the printed greeting was not so easy to read so traced over it with the white gel pen, having already tried fading the sky behind it with the blender Copic pen.
Finally the background is trimmed and attached to the front of the card blank and the monster added using foam pads.
I hope he enjoys his planet and is not too lonely there! I see from his eyes that he has been staring at the rising planet for too long. (OK enough, it’s getting late and I need my sleep!)
If you are really quick there is just about time to join in the challenge at the Limited Runs Facebook page.
