Your Next Stamp DT DARE

This months DT DARE is - SHARE THE LOVE.
I have simply fallen in love with these cute monsters in the new release Silly Love Monsters.  I made 2 masks of each of these monsters using post-its and just one of the hearts.  Then I went to town using my MISTI and created my little love monster crowd.  I used Copic Markers to color them in simply, no shading.  I finished off using Whatnot Sentiments Eleven, also new release, to make my heat embossed sentiment.

CASology 283 Guest Designer

Hooray! 
I have the honor of being Guest Designer for the CASology Challenge #283 today. 
This week's cue is GLIMMER.  Come play along! 

My card is a little tongue in cheek.
I live just outside Seattle and often we are lucky if we get a GLIMMER of sunshine especially in the winter.  So I inked up this Hero Arts beauty Destination Seattle and only colored in the sun.  Then to add more GLIMMER (shine) I used dimensional glaze over my coloring. 

Supplies
Stamps: Destination Seattle (Hero Arts)  Paper: 110# Neenah Solar White Ink: Premium Dye Ink Black Olive (Your Next Stamp), YR23, Y17, Y21 Accessories: MISTI, fun foam, Dimensional Glaze (Inkessentials)
