Monsters on the Island!!

It's time for a new challenge at Desert Island Craft Challenges! This time the Itinerary was chosen by the lovely Suzie McFloozy! Remember to enter you need to use at least 3 items from the list, but we love it when you use as many as you can!

Suzie's Itinerary
1 - Dry embossing
2 - Paper piecing (not to be confused with piercing!)
3 - Pearls
4 - Office stationary (paper clips etc)
5 - Kraft card
6 - Ruffles
7 - Stickers
8 - Stitching
9 - Vintage/Old fashioned (could be an image or just style)
10 - Fabric

Here's my project...
I decided to use these cute little monster stamps from Recollections to create a bookmark.  I stamped my monsters onto some white cardstock, and patterned paper.  I then cut the monsters out of the patterned paper, and adhered it to the cardstock, so that the pattern replaced the monsters bodies.  I then used a mix of Sakura pens to colour the eyes, teeth, feet, horns, hands, nails and tongue, before adding black pearls to the eyes for pupils.  I then added some Tiny Type Alphabet Stickers from Cosmo Cricket, along with some bright dotted ribbon, and a few staples to finish it off.

I hope you'll have time to join us and don't forget to upload your project before the 31st August to be in with a chance of being chosen as a Guest Designer at Desert Islands Crafters Challenge.

Have a great day
