Monsters Inc?

There’s a bit of a story attached to this card I made for my youngest,who’s 6, to give to his  Dad for Father’s Day.Quite often in the early hours of the morning he comes sneaking into our bed for cuddles because he’s afraid of the monsters in his room.Although it’s the monster that’s looking scared here – maybe he’s heard Daddy coming to sort him out!What’s his favourite film? Monsters Inc. – would you believe!!

I’ve used a Dustin Pike freebie image called Scaredy Monster.He’s been coloured using Polychromo pencils along with a blender pencil in Sulley-ish(is that a word?) colours.Distress Inks in Broken China and Stormy Sky have been applied around the edges.The papers are from the K & Co Hopscotch pad and the card is Core’dinations So Mod.The sentiment has been computer generated and I’ve used an inverted corner punch to turn it into a tab. I’ve pierced some holes and added faux stitching.All edges have been distressed using the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser tool.The large button and fibre (that’s been lurking for about 3 years!),in darker Sulley colours are from my stash.

This is an entry for the following challenges :
