* Vera Lane Studio: Holiday Monsters

I am still having trouble with Blogger. 
I'm sorry, but I cannot comment on blogs that only allow Google account users to leave comments. For some reason, if you have comment moderation then I can comment. I have no idea why and any suggestions are most welcome!


Last week saw the introduction of the Holiday Monsters at Vera Lane Studio.

These cute monsters, 2 boys and a girl, make quirky festive cards and I teamed the girl monster with the mistletoe from the Season's Greetings set:

My girl monster is coloured with Copic markers and has white Posca pen highlights. I love her little vest and pants! Her eyes have Glossy Accents and her earrings sparkle with Stickles. She's popped on foam pads on a gelli print background with some Vintage Photo music scale stamping along the edges and torn gold washi tape for added texture and interest. The Mistletoe berries are also coated with Glossy Accents to make them shine. I did add a few snowflakes with Iridescent Glitter paste which you can see if you screw your eyes up tightly! The lovely sentiment comes with the set and I added some gold acrylic paint along the edges.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. 
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
