Shoes, Heroes and Monsters

My final card for the current -and fun- Double D’s Challenge "If the Shoe Fits" features a digi from Bugaboo named "Heels and Accessories." I decided to use a monochromatic color scheme with just a pop of red. Wrote "Hello" on scrap paper to create a template. Cut it out and traced it onto red vellum. Then colored the digi with Spectrum Noir markers, matching the lipstick color to the red vellum. Put the card together adding a bit if sparkle with silver photo corners,silver sparkle gel pen. and Radiant Pearls. Because… well, the only thing that a girl likes more than shoes… is BLING!

Made a fun card using an image from a Craftin Desert Diva digi set named "Coffee Hero" [you can get it here for just 99¢-]. Decided to give the cute little Black Night a coffee break before he had to get to work, especially during Halloween season. The inside sentiment is a freebie from The Child At Heart Blog [] The moon is from a Di's Digi stamp named l "Love To The Moon And Back" [] and the little bats are sketched and fuzzy cut by moi.

My final card using this weeks Stella Says Sketch at Bugaboo has a monochromatic theme with shades of brown. I love the cute little coffee monster named Fluffy Gustov and matching sentiment. [Both are freebies from a site named Useless Trinkets- colored Gustov with Spectrum Noir markers and used up several paper scraps [I have files full of scraps so love to use them up.] I provided a close-up of Gustof so that you can see that I made his fur look fluffy by pouncing my blender pen on the image to get a nice mottled look. [I also need to take another photo of the sentiment but my camera is recharging. Will retake it tomorrow.]
