Project: Monsters and Aliens at MAWTT

Hello and happy Thursday to you!

I loved the challenge this week at Moving Along with the Times: Monsters and Aliens. Any excuse to get out my cute little Bugaboo monsters!

I decided to make this card a bit fussier than my usual ones with this stamp. I colored all the monsters using ProMarkers and then fussy cut out their figures leaving the frame with an empty background. The blue alien normally has antennae but now he looks a bit like Cookie Monster!

I love this striped background paper, it's from a Dutch paper store that Claire loves and I was lucky enough to get a few sheets from her last visit to Amsterdam. I mounted it against the navy card because it didn't really pop on the white card blank. The sentiment is from Little Claire and I thought the simple font worked well with these little guys.

Hope you are able to join in the fun as well, can't wait to see what everyone else creates!
