Birthday Monster x2

I recently learned about the monthly challenge at 
Gerda Steiner Designs when I saw a friends card HERE.

This digital image is called 'I Didn't Eat it (yet)! - Birthday Monster.
I liked it so much that I reversed it once and printed a pair of them.

I started with no idea in mind. I grabbed a few things and started to play.
I began by sponging some peeled paint distress oxide ink onto white card stock with a striped stencil.

I liked how that looked so I slid it over and sponged on some iced spruce distress oxide ink.

I liked it but was in the mood to do some more stenciling so...

...I grabbed a circle stencil, mixed some worn lipstick distress oxide ink with some embossing paste and spread it on.

When I pulled back the tape and the stencil, I liked what I saw and my first thought was to make a baby card.

Instead of a baby card I made a birthday card using the birthday monster
that you can find HERE.

I added some birthday hats and grounded it onto a white hill - no idea why I chose a white hill but I like it so I went with it.

This was such a fun card to make - I tried something new and had some
fun just playing with my supplies. 

Happy Stampin'
