Monstrously Adorable

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Hello.  Gail here today with my first offering for the year and it's a monster!!  Well, actually it's two monsters, but they are just too cute!!!!  Have you seen the new Lost Coast Designs Creepy Dolls??  The team is in total agreement that mostly they aren't really creepy at all, but adorbs!!  Some were released in the autumn and then there was another batch just in time for Christmas.   Here's Frank and his best bud Werewolf outside Wolfy's Ancestral Home.
I started with a panel of white card and the blue smudgy pattern is transfer from a stencil I had used on another project.  Waste ink not!  I cut the panel with a Stitch Rectangle die which I inked with Black Soot distress ink before cutting the panel.  This gave that nice wiggly frame.  Then I stamped the door from Lost Coast Designs Door and Window set using Memento London Fog ink for a subtle effect. 
Did I say Squuueeeee!! yet??  Love these dudes.  I stamped Frank and Werewold on white card with black Archival ink and fussy cut.  Werewolf was coloured with Promarkers and Frank with distress inks and gel pens.   Don't worry about the arm!!  Frank is really good at needlework!!!
I stamped and embossed the Carmen's Veranda Best Friends sentiment and added my little monsters, aranging the loose hand so it looked like Werewolf has really long arms when he puts his arm around your shoulders!!  Then I decided the proportions of the card were all wrong!!
I chopped off the sentiment, recut the top of the card doing the inked border thing again.  I cut out the sentiment and added it back in for a more bijou and cosy look.

Thanks for dropping by.
I hope you feel inspired to get your stamps out and play along with our Anything Goes challenge
There's a chance to win yourself some new stamps for the new year!! 
1, 2, 3, STAMP!!
