Smudgetastic Monster ATCs

In yet another attempt to step outside of my cozy, creative box,
I am making ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) for the very first time.
I was inspired to play along over at
with their theme of "Famous Monsters".
I have never made an ATC before, and when I have wanted to
play along with Jenn's challenges in the past, I usually already exceeded
the  size requirements. I tend to work much larger than 3.5" X 2.5". 

Well, not this time!
I have a bunch of awesome digital images from my
Sister Minion Andrea, who is the creative mastermind behind,
Our Challenge Blog

I ended up using a few images to make a few ATCs.
I just couldn't stop! So fun!!!!

This is "Drakilly".
I backed him with glittery bat paper and glittery spider tape. 

Everyone's favorite burn victim, "Freddy Krueger".
I backed him with some Hallowe'en scraps (which is perfect for ATCs!)
and the ever popular, MS Drippy Goo punch, complete with Stickles.

I also added some clear glaze Sakura pen to his face and hand for
some texture on Fred's burns. 

Lastly, I have used, The Bride of Frankenstein,
but I'm not sure if she's available in the shop or not. 

Stop by Smudgetastic Digis, they have a bunch of
cool and versatile images to work into any project!
