Hare and Monster ATCs

I did a little ATC swap with Kate over at the Kathryn Wheel last month and I realized I hadn't blogged these little guys yet!

This first monster one has a lot of layers to it. First, I took strips of scraps with different textures and patterns, and glued them to the ATC base. Then I painted it over with a watered down blue craft paint... Next I used a stamp with a burlap pattern for texture while the paint was still wet. After it was dry, I used some glue and craft foil to make some super shiny fingerprints... I dabbed the edges with gold inkpad. The monster was watercolor on a bookpage... I cut that out and slapped him on there :)

This one is a hare I drew and watercolored. Bobby thought it looked like a dog-rabbit. I kind of agree, but I like him anyway!

I hope everyone had a super weekend!

Thank you to everybody who left such sweet get well comments. I still don't know why I've been feeling weird. I'm just kinda hoping it'll go away!

Hi Kira
Love the ATCs - is the little monster guy one of your designs? Is he available as a stamp cos I'd love to get one?

Not available as a stamp, unfortunately! But I have lots of other little monsters :)
