Beer Monster

I made this card for my DH from me for Father’s Day.The kids thought it was hilarious and DH loved it.Phew.

He’s a freebie from PollyCraft and I’ve coloured him with Promarkers.I’ve given the glass a coating of Glossy Accents and added an extra dribble running down the glass.I didn’t put it there because I stuck my finger in it to test if it was dry and leave a great fingerprint in it,you understand(if you believe that you’ll believe anything).And I glazed his eyes with some too or maybe he’s wearing his ‘ Beer Goggles’ ?Here’s a closer peek:

I inked round the edges in Crushed Olive and Pumice Stone Distress Inks.I created the greeting on the computer.It was intended as a way of saying Thank You to my DH for being a great Dad as well as fiting the image. I added the same inks to the edges.The papers are Basic Grey Archaic.All the shaped pieces have been cut using Nestabilities Labels 4 with the dark green one being passed through a Cuttlebug Seeing Spots folder and lightly sanded.The square eyelets are from when I bought the first Crop-o-Dile and the round ones are quicklets I had from before I had any kind of eyelet setter.The snake skin piece is an old belt that I took the backing off and then adhered using Glossy Accents.

These are the challenges :

The Cuttlebug Spot – Laying out at the Spot

Lexi’s Creations – Something old (belt and eyelets)

Paper Play – Something Old (same reasons)
