Hi friends! Happy Tuesday! Please join me in welcoming special guest blogger Ashlee McGregor representing the adorable Gerda Steiner Designs on the blog today! How cute are these Coffee Monsters?! For tips and tricks on recreating this card, read on and enjoy!
To start off the card I cut a base piece from Neenah desert storm cardstock and using the Stoney Maloney stencil from Heffy Doodle I inked the full background using Peacock feather distress oxide ink with a blending tool. I then cut another piece of desert storm cardstock using the stitched rectangle die by Lawn Fawn and added this to the card base using some foam tape.
I colored up three of the monsters from the Gerda Steiner Coffee Monster set and colored them up with Copics. Once they were all colored I added a couple of layers of foam tape and added them to the die cut rectangle piece. Using one of the sentiments from the stamp set I cut it into sections and mounted on some black cardstock. To finish off the card I added some Simon says Moonshine sequins for a bit of bling!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks to Ashlee for being our guest today!
