Monstrous Party for Color Throwdown

Hello lovely peeps

I'm very excited to be joining the very talented team at Color Throwdown today as their 'Guest Star Stamper'. Colour really inspires me and is usually the main reason I am drawn to a particular card design/patterned paper etc.

They provide a little picture each week for inspiration and pick out the main colours that you need to have in your creation. The picture for this week's challenge is

So I had a little troll through my digi stamps and found a little gem from Tiddly Inks called 'Monstrous Party' which suits this colour scheme down to the ground.

I printed it onto stamping card and coloured it in with a mix of Graph'Its and Promarkers
Ground: Ice Grey 1-4
Left hand Monster: 4115, 4155, 4180
Middle Monster: 5255, 5270, 5280
Right hand Monster: 5150 and Ice Grey 4
Balloon: 6125 and 6140
Horns, feet and arms: Morning Mist and Grey Squirrel

I typed the sentiment on my computer and layered it up with scraps of patterned papers to match the colours on the main image.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Allsorts #371 One for the Boys
Send a Smile for Kids CAS 4 Kids
The Pencil Case #22 W=Whateva!
Crafty Creations #319 Clean and Simple
Art Impressions Stamp Challenge #188 Anything Goes

As You Like It Challenge Favourite Markers Inks or Pencils (& why) - My favourite markers are Graph'Its because the colours are so vibrant and you have the option of using brush tips which give a lovely finish as well as letting you get into the tiniest areas.

Thanks for stopping by,
