Clearly Besotted September Teasers Day 3

Well hello there! So great to have you back visiting again. We’re back with Day 3, and we’ve got the next part of the Stephjen story. I’m using one set for the whole week which is ‘Pop Up Monsters’. This card is a real fun scene, and I’ll tell you how we got here…

We left Stephjen being spun out of the giant bowl, the word she’d misheard on the TV show was actually ‘Vintage Cheese’ but it came out as ‘Vintage Air’ . The wishmaker Egglemaniac heard ‘Vintage Hair’ so that’s where she ended up…

You can’t see her, but she’s looking on; completely mystified. There was Mr. Egglemaniac who apparently could change colour and really really loved getting his hair coiffed…

You can see the vintage-y hair salon chairs; I simply sketched them out and cut them out of coral cardstock and added some gold gel pen details. To get the idea for this scene, I was looking at the spaceship and thought the dome looked like old fashioned blow dryers. I simply stamped the ship onto post-it type notes and trimmed the dome out, leaving the rest of the ship, so when you stamp over the note, just the dome is stamped.

If you notice some of the detail lines and the hoses, that’s to cover some masking errors and of course to make it look more genuinely like a hairstylists!! 😉 The sketched board just helps everyone understand it’s an hair salon.

Mr Egglemaniac simply didn’t want to get out of the seat. Stephjen got fed up with waiting. Man, that guy loved looking at his reflection just way too much. She noticed that there was an off switch on the wall and sidled over to turn it off.

With the whirr silenced, Mr Egglemaniac slithered off the stool and Stephjen rushed into his place. She still wondered when her wish was coming true. She sat down on the chair which swivelled a little and nearly sent her flying off. The other two customers just stared ahead blankly. From the hoses in the back of the seat came a rumbly sound, almost like the hairdryer was trying to cough. She waited and then through the hose came a perfectly wrapped brown parcel which just plopped onto her lap. Before Mr Egglemaniac could grab it, she grasped it tightly to her chest and ran and ran and ran….(to be continued).

These little monsters are so much fun. You can add clothes to them.. I’m thinking weddings. They are perfect for kids, and with a little fun scene built around them, they’re also great for people who love a little fun!

I hope you can hang on for another 2 cards using this set and it’s proving its worth to you!

    Genius! Those dome driers!!! These monsters will enjoy their trip as some of them are bound to be in need of a wash and untangle, especially after all the spinning around they have done! You’ve made every card so different, you are amazing xx
