Birthday Monster Card & Tag!

Hello! I hope you're enjoying your week so far :) This is our last week before school starts back - and my littlest will be starting Kindergarten!! OMG how did that happen?!! We've had beautiful weather and are definitely enjoying the last of the 'summer'. We even went camping this past weekend with friends and had a lot of fun. This camping trip has turned into a bit of a tradition where about 5 families get together, and we've managed to keep it going for the past five years!
I'm back today to share this super sweet digi image I Didn't Eat It Yet Birthday Monster from GSD Stamps. This is the August challenge image, and if you decide to link it up over at the August Challenge, you'll get the next month's image FREE! How cool is that!

I coloured this cutie up with Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers, which are alcohol based and layered him (or her!) over a background I created with watercolour paper and Distress Oxide Inks. I stamped on a sentiment using a Recollections clear stamp from Michaels.

The great thing about digi stamps is being able to resize them so easily! I printed off a little baby monster and created a coordinating gift tag. Of course I had to add some SpiegelMom Scraps sequins!!

The Distress Oxides work beautifully either on watercolour paper or on the manilla tag. We always have lots of birthdays coming up after back to school starts, so I wanted to get a bit of a head start ;)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you're having a great week. And I'm sending hugs and prayers for all those affected by the flooding in other parts of the world.
