A monster of a Kristina Challenge

Time for another of Kristina Werner's colour inspirations. This time she is doing it a little differently - instead of specific SU colours, she has gone with broader colours - brown, red, yellow, turquoise and white. So now it is even easier for us all to give it a go - so off you go - make something!

I was determined to make something, and have been thinking about what I might do. I had a plan that involved lots of flowers. In fact, I had stamped out the flowers, and had just about cut them all out, when the plan changed, and this happened instead...

Cute monsters huh?! It was much easier than the flowers too, - all made with bunches of punches (oh dear, did I really just write that?!) The reason for the plan change? I blame Campbell. He came to see what I was making. After admiring all those flowers, he announced he had made something at school last week and had forgotten to show me. Would I like to see it now? Well of course I would, bring it on! So he did. And here it is...

A little monster. The cutest little monster I have seen in a while. When I told him so he suggested maybe I could make one too, when I had finished with all those flowers. As you can see, the flowers were relegated to the background, and out came the punches - I do love my punches - and some more little monsters were born...

Made by Tracee, and Campbell!

The SU card colours I used for this were Red Riding Hood (new incolour) tempting turquoise, chocolate chip, so saffron, and whisper white. The sentiments, stamped in Red Riding Hood, are from the Family Phrases stamp set. Not forgetting of course - an assortment of punches - 1 3/8" square, word window, 1/4" circle, and the 1/2" circle.
