Monster Halloween...Addicted to Stamps and More #167~Make Your Mark, Lawnscaping Challenge~Too Cute to Spook, Simon Says Monday Challenge~Monster Mash

Hello!

After a wonderful yet, as always, too short trip to visit my family, I arrived home and BAM!  Hit with the realization that I hadn't created my DT card for Addicted to Stamps and More #167~Make Your Mark.  Of course, given how familiar I am with 'last minute' (which doesn't always translate to 'super fantastic), yet always in dire need of inspiration of some fashion, I went on a search for ideas. It didn't take long before I found my muse, in the form of Melania Deasy and her delightful card here.

I'm still well-immersed in my infatuation with Halloween cards/projects (coming to an end, soon...Christmas cards a-calling), I brought allllll my little Lawn Fawn monsters out for a play date.  I 'made my mark' with my Chameleon pens, distress ink (sponging) and white gel pen (it's hard to see the freckles I added, but they're all sporting a sprinkling).  The 'hills' add kind of a cool touch to my usual same old, same old panels and I can see using this design again, with different images.  For now, those monsters make me smile. Seriously, look at those faces *grin*


My ultra-talented Design Team has shared some amazing *Make Your Mark* cards; please be sure to stop by, show them some love then create a card/project that reflects your inspiration with inks, pencils, water-colours, markers...

Oh my gosh...this is so delightfully, frightfully fun, Carol! You've colored those little guys so well. I really like the detail. Then that pink background really sets them off and lets them shine. The card design is excellent. So well done! Thanks for sharing. Hugs!

Too super cute. I love all your little monsters, and it looks to me like they are all going trick or treating throughout a hilly neighborhood. These guys are all treats and no tricks.

Your coloring/shading is PERFECT!!!! And the freckles....beyond cute! I love how these cute spooks look like they are travelling up on an escalator - perhaps to collect their treats!
