Have a Monstrous Halloween! - Double Trouble Challenge #95 "Halloween Cuteness"

Here is my Design Team card for Double Trouble Challenge #95 "Halloween Cuteness" partnering with Cupcake Inspirations "Halloween Fun".  My inspiration... the little monsters with googly eyes and colors intriqued me to use my CTMH stamp and die set "Montrous Halloween".  During our Little Crop Group on Zoom yesterday, my friend and neighbor offered me her Whimsy rubber stamp "Moon Background".  So was well on my way to creating until I checked to see what Twisted Sister had up her sleeve.  Twisted Sister's optional Tricky Twist asked us to use Washi Tape and it proved to be a tricky twist just like she said... I chose a spider web washi tape that reminded me of a galazy sky... clever huh?  Now to put it all together.  


Stamped and cut the little monsters in several colors used in Cupcake Inspirations Photo #530.  Stamped in black the moon background on white cardstock and fussy-cut.  Then across the top of black cardstock I ran three strips of the spider web washi tape, and adhered with 3D Thin Foam Tape the moon background on the bottom.  

Now the fun of playing around with the placement of the monsters. Four were placed on the right-hand side and a post and stamped sentiment in Gypsy ink, distressed, and all adhered with 3D thin foam tape in a crater on the left.  I needed some color on the moon and decided to use the purple in the craters only.  There was something still missing so I added the blue ghost coming over the moon, and another 3-googly eyes that was coming out of one of the craters.  

Had some monsters left over and placed them in the bottom right-hand corner of the inside of the card joining the monstrous party.

Love your aliens, Suzanne! Too cute. Of course, because they are alien, we can't really tell if they are monsters or animal critters. lol Thanks for entering our "Anything Goes with a Featured Creature" challenge at Critter Crazy this month and good luck.
