I could have gone down the halloween route but went monstrously valentine-ish instead! The card is made using two masks at the same time - lots of breath-holding went on while peeling the masks away! The mask for my goofy-looking monster was made with scallop punches (body and head) and circle punches (horns), I sponged over those, while the background is sponged into a mask made using the Labels framelits. Once that was done, I sponged eyes through another mask made with a 3/8" circle punch onto the monster's head.
If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll know that I've been careering around the UK looking at universities with my daughter. Last Saturday we were in Leeds where I was delighted with these wonderful information cards which were being given out in the student union building. Aren't they fabulous?! I think you can easily see the inspiration for my valentines card on the bottom right!
Of course I missed the one layer bit of the challenge at first and made a layered version (SIGH!) so I thought you might like to see that one too!
It made me very happy that the sentiment from Field Flowers fitted the space beautifully and I love the way one of the Essentials Hardward clips finishes the card off - I'll definitely be using these more often!
