Lawn Fawn - Happy Tooth

Lawn Fawn's Monster Mash is an absolutely adorable stamp set featuring a bunch of cute monsters. One of them is a flying monster, which I see featured in oodles of cards. But the first thing that always pops into my head is how he looks like a flying tooth. And, of course, once an idea like that gets into my brain, there's no stopping it! So, I made a happy tooth card - the kind of card you'd give to a little one who just lost their first tooth. Maybe it could even be from the Toothfairy herself!

I started by cutting a piece of 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" white cardstock in half. This creates a panel that's perfectly sized for Lawn Fawn's Wild Rose notecard, and that's what I'm using as my card base.

I stamped the flying monster, masking of his face with a piece of tape. I also stamped a third "leg" to look more like a tooth root. Then I grabbed the cute crown from Critters Ever After stamp set and stamped it just above each tooth. Lastly, I took the cute smiling face from Milk and Cookies stamp set and added it to each tooth.

I quickly colored the teeth and the crowns in with Copics, without doing any blending or fancy techniques. After I was done coloring, I noticed that the panel looked a little too plain. So, I grabbed a couple of hearts from Monster Mash and Milk and Cookies. I stamped them all over the panel, both in first and second generation stamping.

For the sentiment, I chose "let's celebrate!" from Plus One. It seemed like a great sentiment to go along with the card. I adhered the panel to the notecard with foam tape.

As a last touch, I scattered a few sequins around the panel.
