Birthday card for a 9 year old boy!

We experimented with a technique in our watercolor class with things "outside the box" and of course I thought of doing a card using this technique.  This is the card I came up with for our grandson's birthday.  The stamp set is Make a Monster and the inks used are Tempting Turquoise, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, and Garden Green with just a touch of Real Red.   Add some google eyes and some spritz and buttons and the card is done.  Card stock is Pear Pizzazz, More Mustard, and Tempting Turquoise and most important - Watercolor paper.  It did take me three days though to get the little monsters just right -  but one of the last things I stamped was the eyes on the blue monster.  You can see that one of the eyes is not quite in the right place.    Any way, who knows what a monster is suppose to look like so that's the way I left him.  I had a ball making this card but it is definitely one of a kind.


  1. What a great card. I love it. The monsters look happy and the colors are perfect for a kid's card. Your grandson should love it.
