DCBD Sketch Challenge #197

Welcome back to another Wednesday Diva Coffee Break Designs challenge day.   Wow the time is just whizzing by.  I cannot believe it is already a few days into October.  Crazy!  There are only like 80 or less days left till Christmas.  Ok back to the not so scary stuff, here is this week’s sketch.

dcbd197I have been having a lot of fun playing with the Make a Monster set.  I had to get this set because I was lacking in the boy department and my son and I instantly knew we had to get this set when we saw it in the new catalog.   For today’s card I chose to make some silly monsters.dcbd#179I re-invested in some watercolor paper from Stampin’ Up! the last time I placed an order and I am sure glad that I did.  I usually use shimmery white cardstock to watercolor but it just didn’t have the right feel for these little guys.  I had forgotten how great the Stampin’ Up! watercolor paper really is and how easy it is to watercolor with it.  It is such a great quality, you have to get some yourself to try!   I just used my ink pads and an aquapainter for these goofy guys.   By the way, my son (almost 7) pulled these colors together and wanted me to make a monster card with them, didn’t he come up with a good one?

Now it is time to head over to the Diva Coffee Break Designs Blog to check out the samples that the other divas have made.  Then get out your supplies, show us what you can do with this week’s challenge and add a link to your creation for us to all see!

Adorable card! Just had to say I really like your blog banner, too! Mine is similar -- great minds think alike and all that! But, I like what you did with the butterflies -- cool idea!!
