hi! it's day three of the papertrey ink august release countdown and i have another look at my new set scared silly. as i said yesterday, scared silly is not just for halloween. kids especially will love these little guys! so, today i have a birthday card with the happy birthday sentiment i included in the set. i thought it would be fun to create a kind of rainbow monster for this one, using different colors on different pieces and parts.
i ended up with a harvest gold body, summer sunrise arms and legs, a pure poppy mouth, green parakeet nose, and hawaiian shores eyes. color really does make me happy! i added the happy birthday monster sign to one hand and balloons to the other, both in neutrals so as not to compete with the colorful monster - soft stone and smokey shadow for the sign and white with soft stone stars for the balloons. i covered the balloons in clear glitter for a little extra texture and bling.
one other detail you may have noticed is that i used two of the same feet and placed them to make it look like he was walking. it's fun to play around with the pieces to see what new combos work! what do you think? do you have a favorite monster so far? come back tomorrow for one last post - with two cards! until then, be sure to head over to the papertrey ink blog to see what's being featured today...
all new product, including scared silly, will be available for purchase on august 15th!
