Monstrously Old!


For SCS Ways To Use It Challenge 236 . . . Numbers

I made this for my son, who turns 21 in November. Since he is over a thousand miles away at college, we are making several cards and treats to send in the week prior to his birthday.

These images are from Silly Monsters, a new September 16 release by Chicken Girl Design Stamps, available at i {heart} papers, along with the Lime Rickey Basic Grey DP, brads, and Spellbinders Tag Die. This card measures 5 in. sq.

The monsters are stamped on watercolor paper and painted with reinkers and an aqua brush.
The "21" numbers are Basic Grey stickers.
