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)

Card measurements: 95 mm x 133 mm (3 3/4" x 5 1/4")
