This, at long last, is my card for Judy's Monster Mash challenge.
This was enormously hard for me. I don't do Halloween (there are all of about two Halloween cards in my gallery, which is about 0.01% of my cards. And even if I did, by the time I mail mine to TX Halloween will be long gone.
Truthfully, when I first read the challenge I wanted to incorporate Embedded Embossing because if that's not mashing I don't know what is. After multiple viewings of the video - there's a little frog with a candle about about 2.15 minutes in. And I added googlie eyes too :D.
5" square kraft base. I made my background by sticking QuicKutz mushrooms to the green paper and embossing with SU's Square Lattice, then adding Liquid Pearls to the toadstools.
Frog was stamped, masked and then I sponged the background with Peeled Paint and Broken China. Frog is coloured with Bundled Sage and has Liquid Pearl accents. He's layered up on a red circle and then a black Lacy Circle. I punched the corners of the base layer, matted it onto black and added pearls. For the inside I used the "have I toad you lately" sentiment from Unfrogettable.
