Hi there, I have a rather zingy door hanger to share this week perfect for your own favourite little monster. I couldn’t resist inking up my new favourite PaperArtsy stamp set as these images are just adorable.
Archival Ink – Fern Green, Jet Black
First paint the door hanger with the orange paint, it doesn’t have to be perfect as there’s going to be a lot of layered stamping on top!
When the paint was dry, I stamped on the larger circular design with the bright orange ink. I followed this with the smaller circular stamp and the fern green ink. To tone down the brightness a little, I stamped the larger circle image again all over using the white gesso.
I then stamped my 2 chosen monsters on the stamping card using black ink and coloured the images with Promarkers in various shades. I wanted a strong contrast to my background so used mainly blue, green and purple.
I cut out the whole of the shorter monster and just parts of the tall monster. I stamped the tall monster directly on the door hanger using the black ink and then glued on the body hands and feet. This saves having to cut out the legs and arms, which I felt would lose some of the crisp detail.
I glued the second monster in place and then added a sticker from the book, which I cut in half. I couldn’t believe the perfect words – it just goes to show how versatile this particular sticker book is!
