Monster-ific Birthday

Pin It

I love little monster that I used on my card for the new Meljen’s Designs sketch challenge. I used one of the new images called Fuzzer the Monster. I kept trying to color him to look fuzzy and just wasn’t getting the look I wanted. I finally had my “Aha!” moment and pulled out the Fun Flock. Still not satisfied, I colored some spare “spots” and embossed them to get the bumpy texture. Now I love how he turned out.

The new Meljen’s Designs challenge is a sketch designed by our teamie, Dianna. You can see the rest of the DT’s creations and link up your project on the Meljen’s Designs blog.

And here is a look at the images being released today. You can find these in the Meljen’s Designs store. These images are perfect for all those cards for boys!
