Cute Monsters - Like Father, Like Son

Hi everyone,   Yesterday there was a planned power outage in my neighbourhood so what better time than to do some colouring.  It was a sunny, 30 deg.C day so no need for lights. The vacuuming, ironing and cooking had to wait....!

I've discovered Pollycraft digitals and they are quickly becoming a favourite.  Now, you might need your shades for this's pretty bright!  The cute image is called Monster Hugs and you can find it here.  I thought this would be perfect for Father's Day.   I coloured them in turquoise...this is the colour they have them in the shop and I loved it.....not very original but when it works, it works....oh I did change the tie to match my DP :)

I've used my a La-La-Land banner die and Spellbinders Back-to-basics tags.  Letters were cut using Quickutz.  DP is TPC Studio (bugs and butterflies), CS is from Stampin Up.   A very CAS card but I do like it...making these fellas the main attraction!
Big guy: BG34, 32, 49, 78, R20
Little guy: BG11, BG23, R20
Tie: YR04, YR07, Y15, Y19
Shading: T6, 4, 2, 1, 0

I will be entering the following challenges:
  1. CRAFT Challenge #209 - Father's Day
  2. Delightful Challenges - For Dad
  3. Paper Crafting Journey - Masculine
  4. Crafting by Design - Anything Goes

Cute Monsters is RIGHT, Pat - how adorable this image is. And you have made it fabulous with your shading and colors. I could not help but chuckle when your page popped up! Wonderful image - but it is your choice of layers and colors which really bring out the cuteness and fun. I am sitting up for brief periods now, and wanted to visit your blog. You have been busy, and all the cards are works of art - just lovely and pretty monochrome colors, too. hugs, de
