Have a Lil Monster birthday!

Good evening,

Today is my friend Brian's birthday, and I am popping in with a quick post to show you the card I made for him.

I used my new Annabelle Stamps set Lil Monsters Balloon.  I bought this stamp after coming across it in a youtube video,  what a cute stamp this is, and such superb quality!!

So here is my Lil Monster, coloured with Derwent Inktense Pencils.  I didn't wait for my first layer to dry properly when colouring his skin, and there is a dark spot near his right eye that still really annoys me in this image, but it is still all a part of the learning experience. As i had just got my UTEE in the mail I wanted to play, so this little guy got two layers, looking back I should have gone that extra layer, but perhaps the 'rustic' look is better for this Lil Monster ;)

The sentiment is also a part of the stamp set, cute huh!

Happy birthday Brian, although I know you won't comment, I do know you will read this ;)  Even though you had to work today, i hope you have had a good day and you have a super year to come!

Thanks for looking
