Guest Design - Coffee Monster by Anika Lerche

October 13, 2017

Hey stampers, Anni here!

I am so happy to be back as a guest designer this month.

Coffee and monster? Hello? Couldn't get much cuter than that, could it?
I couldn't decide which monster to use - so I used three of the four in the set. I just left the fourth out because there wasn't enough room on my card left - it is super cute, too! These two things are included in the set Coffee monster that I used for my card.


I started by stamping the monsters with a black ink and coloured them with coloured pencils - my favourite colour medium. When you finish the colouring the black lines aren't really black anymore. Previously I went over the lines with a black pen. But I learned a great trick: If you leave the stamps in your stamping tool you can easily stamp them again after colouring - this time with a really black ink like Versafine! Fast, easy and a really good effect!


Because of the cuteness of the monster I decided to keep the rest of the card simple. I die cut a stitched rectangle from white cardstock. I created a floor by ink blending a LITTLE bit of grey ink for the monsters to sit on. Then I stamped the sentiment and assembled the card!

Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty weekend.
Anni
