FM238 Happy Birthday, Human!

We have an interesting challenge for this week's Friday Mashup, Superheroes & Storybook Layout, and this one with run for two weeks.

I thought for a long time on this one.  I found it hard to convey a story across a card front with limited stamp images.  I tossed out the superhero idea, since I have almost no superhero images, and focused on my cartoon image stash.

I decided to build the card around the Make a Monster stamp set and pulled in a few other sets to tell a story of sorts.  This is kind of a coast-to-coast birthday wish from the monsters.  I got a chance to use my new Derwent Inktense blocks for coloring, and I really, really wanted to use a typewriter for the sentiment.  Mine broke long ago.  I'm debating whether I should buy another, should I get a used one, would it work, and what ribbon ink refills...  sigh.

This week's Mashup Challenge is:  

  • Create a project featuring Super Heroes. 
  • or Create a project with Storybook layout. 
  • or Mash it up! and create a Super Hero card using a Storybook Layout.
Stamps: Make a Monster, Yee-Haw, Calling All Heroes, From the Herd, Beary Best Friends; Paper: Whisper White; Ink: So Saffron, Black Stazon, Fine Sharpie, Derwent Inktense Blocks; Accessories: Wink of Stella clear glitter brush, Confetti Star border punch, Aquapainter, Dimensionals; Font: Traveling_Typewriter.

Love this monster set. I use them a lot on the front of envelopes - funny for the mail person too! I still have my old typewriter, but I find myself using typewriter fonts - My type of font, old typewriter, & Mom's Typewriter are some of the fonts from
