Valentine Monster Card

Hi everyone! Happy Valentine's Day!! :o)

This is my second post today. If you missed the first one, just scroll down or follow a direct link here.


Today I want to share with you this Valentine Monster Card. :o)


I made this card for my sweetheart. 

To make this card I used super adorable 'Monster the One and Only' freebie digital image from Goebie Design. :o)


How I made my card...

I made a layout on my computer and printed the image directly on a Kraft cardstock card base. I left it aside for an hour to let ink dry completely to prevent ink smearing while coloring.

I colored the image with various colored pencils.

Then I colored monster's eyes, teeth and toes and drew white highlights with a white pigment ink.

As a finishing touch, I rounded three corners with a rounded corner paper puncher and my card was finished. :o)

Birthday Hippo Card

Hi everyone! :o)

Today I want to share with you this Birthday Hippo Card. :o)


I made this card for my friend Mirela who's birthday was yesterday. :o)

To make this card I used super adorable 'Valentine Hippo' freebie digital image from Goebie Design and a 'Happy Birthday' sentiment stamp from Lawn Fawn which I got for my last birthday from Lawn Fawn. :o)


How I made this card...

I made a layout on my computer and printed the image on a white cardstock paper panel.

Then I printed out 2 more images on a white carsdstock paper and 2 on a watercolor paper.

After couple hours of drying I colored pieces I needed in watercolor technique and other pieces with black marker. After drying, I fussy cut all pieces, except the one printed on the panel, traced edges with black marker and softened watercolored pieces on a soft working mat using stylus ball. I did this to add some dimension to my image.

Here is a photo of all pieces I used for paper piecing this adorable hippo.


With all pieces ready, I glued together pieces. I used liquid glue and 3-D foam to add even more dimension.

I stamped the sentiment on the panel, glued a patterned paper stripe on a white top folded card base and then the panel with the image.

As a finishing touch, I drew white highlights with a white pigment ink and my card was finished. :o)
