Grrrr-rrrr-eat ! Halloween Monster Card

Leo Lionni's and Eric Carle's charming children's books often were illustrated with beautiful watercolored drawings.  I tried to give these Bo Bunny stamped monsters a similar splotchy, runny look. Using the Misti stamping tool for the accurate placement of images, I stamped the two smaller monsters first, masked them with washi tape and then over stamped with the largest monster.
 After coloring the monsters with a combination of watercolor pencils and Kuretake watercolors, I fussy cut them and glued on googly eyes.  The whitish foreground was achieved with a Bistro white marker.  Oh yes, the speech balloon was made with a Paper Smooches die.  This card is easy and fun to make for Halloween or any occasion ( i.e.use 'Surprise' for birthdays). Hope you have a monster of a time crafting Grrrr-eat visions using your magnificently creative brain!
