Whimsy Stamps 31 Nights of Halloween Celebration - Franken Monster Birthday

Hi everyone! I am back today with my second creation for Whimsy's 31 Nights of Halloween celebration over at the Whimsy Inspirations Blog! There is still time to participate in our games to have the chance of winning some spooktacular prizes! Make sure you don't miss this!

This time I have a birthday card to share using the awesome 'Franken Schmutz' clear set by Deb Davis. I love this Franken monster, he is so cute. I also like that this set can be used for a variety of cards, it really is versatile!

I decided to go with blue and violet colors and also include a little shaker circle. The background was made using Distress inks/crayons in tumbled glass, shaded lilac, wilted violet and seedless preserves. First I applied a color wash with Distress inks and let it dry. Then I used a Tim Holtz stencil (Bubble) and Distress Crayons to add some texture to my background. Some spritzers of water finish off the background.

All the elements were stamped with VersaFine black ink and cut out with the matching Franken Schmutz dies (sold separately and not included with the clear set). The sentiment is included in the clear stamp set and was stamped with VersaMark ink and embossed with white detail embossing powder. As I always need some glitz and/or bling on my cards I colored his eyes with a silver gel pen and used sequins not only as shaker filling but also to embellish the card. I used sequins from my stash as well as Painted Garden SequinsThey match wonderfully with my card.

Here are the Whimsy products used on my card
