I dreamed a dream...

This is my last monster card for a little while I think (well maybe..., I do like those monsters : ))  I had a bit of trouble with the colour of this one... I think the orange and the green of the grass was a bit out of my comfort zone.  I went over the orange with 3 or 4 different other colours to tone down the brightness a bit.



















































The papers are from October Afternoon, Cosmo Cricket and Bo Bunny and the Dream card is from My Mind's Eye.  The sun is made of felt from Blooming Felt and the twine is from The Ribbon Girl.

These are most of the copics I used apart from the ones I used to tone down the orange...



















And since the Forgotten Scraps Challenge number 2 still has a few hours to go I figured I may as well enter this card too...

Wow... fabulous! And I really can't believe you added so many layers of orange... it looks great! I love the texture the sun adds to the card and the dream playing card is a fun whimsical touch. Awesome card and thanks for another submission into the Forgotten Scraps "Anything Goes" challenge! :D

You did well with the oranges! Did you use the warm greys? That is a superb trick we read about for warm or cool shading.
Loved the phase of monsters....
