Monster of a Gift

It's time for a new challenge from Paper Makeup Stamps' Digi Makeover Challenge.  This week's challenge is for something we all need to have on hand:  a birthday card.

Monster of a Gift from Paper Makeup Stamps is a perfect choice, because everybody likes gifts, even monsters.  The image is colored with Copic markers and fussy cut out so I could pop dot it above my background.  I created the background by stamping an older Hero Arts rubber stamp with a glue pad and sprinkling Stampendous glitter (sea green) all over.  Smooch (illuminated) was painted on the monster's spots for a shimmery effect.   I added some paper floss and a button, and I now have one more birthday card in my stash.

You have one week to upload your birthday creation to the Digi Makeover Challenge blog.  The rules are listed right before the Mr. Linky button, but are pretty simple, with the main one being that you must use a digi image for our challenges.

Copics used: BV13, BV17, Y08   G14, G17, G19    Y14, Y15
