Back to the card... So celebrating Christmas a bit before Halloween. Why not get Halloween to celebrate Christmas 😉

Let me introduce you this monster family Moto, Poto, Tito and Bobi... not really, I don't know their names, but that suits them well. They are weirdos, trust me. How do I know? because they are Swedish made!

They are celebrating St. Lucia and singing the Santa Lucia song, but they have some tongue problems. Oh, what is Santa Lucia? it is a very traditional Swedish celebration on the 13th of December each year. Check it out online, then you'll know why Poto has candles on her head!

A little bit on how I made the card. I stamped and masked the monsters, and water coloured the background. Also the monsters are water coloured too. I added some rhinestones to represent shiny stars and I love using white dots.

The sentiment I created and printed out. I thought it suited some cute singers - especially those having problems with their pronunciations!


Here is the in progress messy table. Yes I am lazy, I taped the watercolour card stock to the cutting mat and I started with the dark colours building up layers one to dry and then another on top of it. Once I was satisfied with the background I removed the masking paint and coloured my sweeties. Of course as usual everything went messy, otherwise it wouldn't be me! I thought I'd make the colouring smooth but changed my mind and thought a stained background can be cool too.




I hope you have enjoyed this trip on Swedish House Crafts and you can now continue to Laura's blog.

Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog, there are lots of chances to win.

A big hug from me, Suha.
