Sketch Saturday - Sketch #269

This is the last weekend of my vacation.  I'm kind of feeling like the little monster in my card - a little down in the mouth!  I've had such a relaxing time and spent a good portion of it in my craft room! But, I have to work to pay for my card-making habit!

The digi company, Stamp Fairy is this week's Sketch Saturday sponsor.  My digi is from their Monsters Under My Bed collection.  I decided to take a different route this week and use paper piecing.  I printed the monster twice and used one of the images to cut up for the piecing.  I went in with my Copics and colored the green horns (YG 01, 03, 06) and gave him a touch of shading (W1, W3). Some of the papers I used are from deep in my stash - like six or seven years old! I adapted the sketch for an A6 card.

Hope you will play along with us at Sketch Saturday this week!

Challenges entered:
A.R.T. Challenge - anything goes
Use It Tuesday - What was I thinking?  - The green checked paper and the white and green polka dot paper are from a HUGE stack of 9 x 12" Lasting Memories paper that I bought on clearance for 10 cents each (and have hardly used any of them!!)
