Monster Hugs {Lawn Fawn}

Hello there!  I had some time this past weekend to do some crafting, and I couldn't resist coloring some of the monsters from the new Lawn Fawn Monster Mash stamp set!  I think these little guys are some of my favorites from the new release, and I love that they can be used for so much more than halloween.  Today though, I have a halloween-ish card to share.

Here is a bit of a closeup while I was coloring my monsters... little details like dots and white gel pen accents make them look so alive! :)

In case anyone is interested, here are the colors I used:
Green monster: YG01, YG03, YG05, YR12, YR15, YR18
Purple monster: BV02, BV08, BV13, W03
Orange monster: YR12, YR15, YR18, E09
Yellow monster: YR32, YR35, YR38
Blue monster: B00, B02, B24, B28

And here is my card...

Monster Hugs

I used a dark grey, almost black cardstock for the card base and fishtailed banner.  The orange patterned paper is from the Lawn Fawn Into the Woods 6x6 paper pad, and the tiny stars were diecut from the shapes that come with the Journaling Card die.

That's all for now... thanks for stopping by! :)
