I mentioned in my last Stampotique post that I was itching to colour in these cheeky monsters, so that's exactly what I did for this week's project.
I love the idea of boring beige coloured monsters sprouting (or maybe they dye them, maybe it's all a ruse?!!!) fantastically coloured moustaches. The inspiration for the background came from a paper gift bag ...
.. so I started by pasting down strips of brown paper then added some simple pencil lines.
I used watercolour paints to add colour to my monsters ...
... and created some coloured strips of watercolour paper whilst I had the paints out.
After colouring my monsters and cutting them out, I stamped them a number of times so I could cut out the moustaches.
There was a lot of fussy cutting involved with this page, but then, that's ideal when you've got your feet up post op!!
