Hello there. I’ve had fun playing with this monster die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs – and getting inky and messy:
I first created a piece of card sprayed with a Tim Holtz green mica spray, layered several times and splattered with water. Once dry, I die cut the monster body.
The monster legs were die cut from a piece of card I had made previously – I think created with black soot, splattered with water and white acrylic paint, and a varnish added to create some shine.
The arms were die cut from a Distress Ink green background panel from a previous messy crafting session.
The eyes, flower and horns from the same panels used on the rest of the monster – but of course bright white teeth!
The background is a piece of patterned paper, dry embossed with a swirly embossing folder, and then Hero Arts white pigment ink swiped across the catch and highlight the raised areas.
The sentiment is from Elizabeth Craft Designs also – and placed as though the little monster is balancing on one leg on top of it.
