Yay!! It’s Honey, I Shrunk the Kit! time again, and for anyone new to this, or interested in how it originated, please read this post.
The gloriously talented Sarah Platt is our host this month, and has compiled an out of this world little kit called ‘Monster Madness’!
Check it out:
So full of cosmic colour and fun! Sadly, the first kit Sarah sent me may have been abducted by aliens, as it never arrived. 😦 Sarah kindly sent me another kit, which arrived doubly fast, and was put into immediate action. So, here goes:
The space backdrop was created by drawing dots on the black cardstock with my white gel pen. The little aliens have been coloured with alcohol markers; the cratered planet has been inked and water-splattered, and the party hats, inspired by Laura Bassen’s card, are from Gerda Steiner’s How Are Ewe? stamp set – a party ain’t a party without a party hat! Now where are the balloons…
I did something a little different for this space backdrop: I stamped star clusters from Gerda Steiner’s How Are Ewe? stamp set in Versa-mark, before applying clear EP and heat-setting it. I then inked the background in Wild Wisteria, Basic Grey & Night of Navy inks. The sweet little icons were coloured with alcohol markers before being fussy-cut, and applied with the trio of stitched frames. The sentiment was die-cut and inked in Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin pie, and popped up with dimensionals.
How cool are these lashed googly eyes??? Couldn’t go past a love-sick googly ghoul (or two), a row of hearts, and a big red satin bow! Sarah kindly gave us a few eyes to play with, so expect to see them again on another project.:-) The row of hearts die is from SU’s Everyday Jars Framelit Dies.
This could have worked well as a shaker, but I was happy to keep the focus on the lovely star patterned paper. I wanted some tone-on-tone stars to continue the theme beyond the navy frame, so I randomly stamped the star cluster (again, from Gerda’s How are Ewe? set) in versa-mark all over the front of the card. The sentiment is from a discontinued stamp set from Annabelle’s Stamps called Boy’s Party.
And, that’s it!
Now it’s time to visit my fellow ‘Honeys’ and see how they were inspired!
Thanks again for a fantastically fun kit, Sarah! I am so sorry (again) that the first kit is MIA! It has been such a blast to work with, and I am spoilt to still have some bits and bobs to use later. It is my turn to host next, so look out for the next installment of HISTK! due in early November…
Thanks so much for visiting!
