Monster Snacks

     Cruise on over to Sketch N Scrap to help us celebrate our 6th birthday. It is a huge celebration with tons of sketches, challenges, and prizes galore. Here is an inspiration card for the blog challenge.
      I am totally double-dipping on this one. Scrappin' Savvy, where I shop, crop, and teach, is having a challenge this month. Everyone was given a bag of goodies. The challenge: use some of everything in the bag. The bag contained two pieces of two-sided paper, two sheets of card stock, a monster stamp, a sentiment stamp, the Burniston Gift Card Label Die, and ribbon. 
     This one is ultra challenging for me, because I elected to add the additional challenge of using a Sketch N Scrap challenge sketch as well. Here is Lisa Hidy's sketch. 
Sketch # 122 by Lisa Hidy
     I started with a creation from my Silhouette. I cut a light bulb, then cut another from acetate. I stamped it with Stazon ink. I then added a thin red border. 

     The monster was a treat to color. Coloring imaginary creatures is a treat because they can be ANY color!!! I added white spots with a white gel pen.
