I had some time to ink up these sweet little monsters from the new My Favorite Things "Monster Squad" today and had to get out every color flock I own for their furry little costumes!
Some parts are colored with Koh-iNoor pencils and OMS, the remaining areas I covered with my Quickie Glue Pen and pressed in my flock, one color at a time. I cut out all the images, placed some on dimensionals, and then stamped the image again so I could cut out the rabbit face to add a third layer like it was peeping out through the hood. The DP is Basic Grey Sugared, I love the earthy tones they mix with the pink in this pack. (I drew a little shadow under each with a marker, but difficult to see now, the dark colors of the DP absorbed it, I need to go back over again) I added my black grosgrain and layered the DP on Basic Black and More Mustard, but the card needed a little something still, so I fished out a Zoo Brad to put on my tied ribbon and drew in some little spots with my black pen to match on one character. (I had a hard time getting this photographed to my liking, but I wanted you to see the layers.)
As I worked on each costumed child, I realized none are really "monsters", just sweet animal costumes, so with different colors I think you could use this image for lots of other occasions besides Halloween, use each child separately, piece their cotsumes from DP to look like footy pajamas, etc... :)
Short post, I'm sick! :( (and sick of dealing with "6 year-old angst"!!! Kids are cute or who could put up with them sometimes?! I'd bang my head against the wall over an incident at the mall Sunday but I still have my migraine from Friday!!! grrr...... don't worry 'bout me, though, I'll be in a better mood tomorrow... actually will probably be sad since school starts and I'll forget all about what happened after a few hours and start missing him ...)
