Colorful Monsters

Hi all!  I'm back with a card featuring this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.  Our hostess who came up with this gorgeous sketch is our other talented Camp Mother, Jennifer Timko.  Jennifer and Jen (last week's hostess) keep this challenge running smoothly even though they both have busy lives outside of crafting.  They are amazing and I'm grateful for them both!

Now I absolutely love sketches with circles and circle frames even more so!  I decided to create a card that I could enter into Lawn Fawnatic's current challenge, focusing on the colors in their inspiration photo.  I'm also linking up to Addicted to Stamps & More's Anything Goes challenge.

I stamped and Copic-colored these adorable images from Monster Mash and cut them with the matching dies.  For the sentiment strip, I used a piece of woodgrain patterned paper die-cut with the woodgrain die from Blueprints 17 before white-embossing the sentiment.  Onto a white card base, I added a pierced rectangle layer and then a pierced circle frame die-cut.  The monsters and sentiment strip are popped up on foam tape.  I finished the card with some Nuvo Crystal Drops and a bit of Glossy Accents on the one-eyed monster.

I did take a photo of the Copics I used to color each of these monsters but the focus was off, so if you want to know any of the color combos, please let me know in the comments.

Thanks for visiting!  Be sure to head over to the FMS blog and see what the rest of the design team did with this cool sketch.
