a little roar

ok, so here's my 2nd entry for the current runway inspired challenge, and i LOVE it! lol!

i can totally imagine giving this card to someone who is having a rough time and just wants to go on a rampage! (i sort of felt that way yesterday, if i could have set a small silhouette-d town on fire it just might have made me feel better! lol) what's not to love about the bright fun colors, and a giant pink monster! it would totally turn a bad day around, right?

i used the stamps from my cute stamps, eek! a monster! the monster is paper pieced and then i colored in her teeth with my white gel pen. i also added some glossy accents to her 'scales', after i colored them in with a soft grey, to add some dimension to them. i also added the glossy accents to the spikes on her back and her belly. 

the city was stamped directly into the white background, but then i also stamped it again on fussy cut it out, i then popped it up for dimension. i added some 'flames' to the city, too! of course! lol! i used my heidi swapp color shine leftover scrap paper then i stamped the flames out and fussy cut them out. to top it all off, i splattered some heidi swapp onto the 'sky' to emphasize the fire. 

i am really digging how this card turned out! i hope it brought a smile to your face (especially if you're having a bad day!).
