Tuesday Throwdown #230: Monster Mash

Happy Tuesday, friends! Hope you are ready for another week of crafting fun with the Tuesday Throwdown gang. Our challenge theme this week is Monster Mash. All you have to do is incorporate little monsters on your project.  Our sponsor is My Grafico but you can use any stamps as long as you follow the theme.

I made these fun little notecards for my nephews with images generously provided by our sponsors. The papers were given to my by my blogging buddy - Monika Reeck. She's originally from Indonesia, now living in Germany, and these patterned papers are traditional batik designs. The sentiments are from WMS Half Pint Heroes clear stamp set .

I love the  bold design of these papers and thought they would go well on some fun cards with bright colours. The little monsters seemed to be the perfect match.

I tried to coordinate the little monster with the patterned papers. On this one, I'm inspired by the horns and dots. I carried on the dotty theme with droplets of Liquid Pearl.

Here I'm inspired by the spikes and talons. You can see it on the paper too!

And this wacky dude was just asking for something spotty.
