The stamp set I am showing today is the mini-set lbs005 'Lil Monster Gone Fishing'. The first card I'm showing you is the one that I gave the sneak peek of on Sunday. I coloured the image using Prismacolor pencils and odourless mineral spirits. I added some Dimensional Magic to Lil Monsters eyes and tooth, you can see this better in the close-up photo. The small heart is from the ABS 'Hoo Loves Christmas' stamp set, I've popped it up on dimensional dots. The papers I used are from Crate Paper's Restoration Collection 6 x 6 paper pad, I sewed around the edges of the large background piece and distressed the edges. The black and white striped ribbon is also from AnnaBelle Stamps and I've wrapped it around a piece of Core'dinations Black Magic Potion No.9 cardstock, which I embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and sanded back to reveal the teal coloured core. The cardstock is Black Pedigree Paper and 'Taken With Teal' Stampin' Up.
For my second card, I coloured Lil Monster with Copic Markers. The patterned papers are by Kaisercraft, I used both sides of a sheet called Fun Fair Ringmaster. The orange strips that I sewed along the edges is twisted paper cord, which is also available from AnnaBelle Stamps. The cardstock is all by Stampin' Up, I've popped the sentiment up on dimensional dots and added a button tied with a single strand of the twisted paper cord.
