Monster-ous Wishes

Today's one layer card uses the Gerda Steiner progressive Birthday Monster digital stamp. I printed, colored and fussy cut him out. The background is sponged and splattered with Tim Holtz squeezed lemonade Distress ink. The splatter was created by adding distress ink to my craft mat and spritzing with some water. I dipped the toothbrush into it and ran my finger across the bristles over my card front. The light splatter blends in and makes the sentiment pop against the brighter white on the bottom. The Birthday Monster is popped up using an Action Wobble.
