Lawn Fawn’s Monster Mash

Its been a pretty hectic work week and cardmaking has been the furtherest thing on my horizon.  That being said, I really wanted to get this idea thats been brewing in my head into reality so I decided to put aside my yucky paperwork this glorious Sunday afternoon and concentrated on a bit of cardmaking fun.  

First I took a 4-bar blue card and masked the 4 edges with post-it strips. I then blended Squeezed Lemon and Salty Ocean Distress Inks into the card, spritzing the finshed background with some White Perfect Pearls before letting it dry.

I used the Lawn Fawn Snowy Backdrop die to cut a panel of white cardstock to fit over my blended colours. I love the way the sparkly stars and dots just twinkle their way through the white.  

Next, I took the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside border and cut out a curved “moon” from white cardstock. I also cut out 3 ovals from post-its to mask the “craters” before blending the cardstock with Tsukineko Momento Gray Flannel ink. I then spritzed it with White Perfect Pearls and set aside to dry. 
While it was drying, I die cut my monsters, stamped them in Tsukineko Brilliance Graphite Black ink and coloured them in with copics BG11, BG32, YG23 and YG25. The bow and hat were coloured in B32, B16 and BV04.

Once my moon was dry, I peeled off my craters and sprtized it again Perfect Pearls but this time in Pearl. This gave it a creamy moonshine type of glow rather than just a brilliant white. The picture below shows the 2 different colours which I think give the moon its depth.  

I took the rain stamp from the Lawn Fawn Hello Baby set to create a dashed background on white cardstock using Tsukineko Versacolor Cement ink. I then stamped the sentiment on in Graphite Black before cutting it all down to size. 

 
I mounted my moon, monsters and sentiment on 3d foam for some dimension. The card seemed a little off balance so I added a little silver button to finish off the card.

What have you been creating with this gorgeous set?
