Haaahahaa, can you tell it is the end of the month???  This is the time when all projects need to be fine tuned and "turned in" to the respective challenges.  This month has flown by and again, I am so happy I have found this fun new community of super creative people.  I have been floored by what they can come up with and the talent they all have.  Alright, done with the mush and butt kissing.

This project is a fun 5" x 7" card.  All supplies are from Stampin' Up! except for the stamped images.  I am entering this in a Challenge called Very Sketchy, from Smeared and Smudged.   The sketch to the left is the card sketch that is featured this month.

I have been itchin' to use a set called Monster Mash from Dylusions.  I also used the saying from a set called Say It How It Is, Dylusions.

All images were stamped with Versa Mark and embossed with Black Embossing Powder.

 This saying cracked me up and had to make it look like this little guy escaped his container.  I used a blender pen, Perfect Plum, Elegant Eggplant, and Pumpkin Pie ink pads to color in critter.

I cut all images and layered to give more character to this critter.

I used Crystal Effects on each cut image with a tad bit of glitter to help images stand out from the busy background.

I made the diagonal lines from 4 different kinds of Designer Paper (Polka Dot Parade, International
Bazaar, and Sycamore Street).  I cut each into 1" strips then in smaller rectangles.  I adhered to center of 1 1/8" strip of Basic Black card stock.

Ribbon is More Mustard 1/2" Scalloped Dot.
Dimensionals were used to raise the top images on critter and the saying strips.
Silver Marker on the base of container and on highlights on glass top.


  1. This reminds me of the Frankenstein Series by Dean Koontz - there is a creature in the book that escapes and is totally unsupervised. Fun image and you totally gave it some personality and brought it to life - LOL! Super card!!!!

    1. Jacko was that crazy little guys name, loved that series! TY for your comment, s.

  2. OMG, this is hilarious! LOVE the set and you did a fab job with the sketch. I had NO IDEA what to do with it. xxD

    1. All the sayings in that set are great! Thanks, s.

  3. Shoni, this is so cool! The saying is a hoot and pulls it all together beautifully, but the design work is wonderful from the busy ribbon to the colors to the shiny finish on the monsters! Love it!

  4. I love everything about your creation. Your take on the sketch your saying and your images setting such a great scene. Really fab. Vee xx
