Seven Deadly Sins (Greed)
Illustration Friday: Ferocious


I had one more sin left to represent and found it to be the hardest by far, greed. I couldn't figure out what my monster should look like and what he should be greedy about. Money? Toys? Food was out since that is Gluttony's vice.

Now, with Halloween looming and needing an illustration for October's Special Feature on the Creative Cup Illustrator's Group blog, something festive was required. Pumpkins! Evil cats! I had found my inspiration. Greed was born.

...And, it just so happens, he looks pretty ferocious, which fits the bill for Illustration Friday's theme this week. What luck!

Fall Thank You

A Fall Thank You

Nothing new here. Just more dots using my dimensional metallic paint, fall leaf stamps I've had forever, Rummage font by Making Memories (magnetic) and scrap paper. I debated making ice cream related thank you cards to go with the ice cream invitations. But I'm out of the ice cream mood. It's feeling pretty fall outside, so I thought I'd embrace it.

Ice Cream Social Invitations

Here's the scoop...
Birthday Party Invitations

I dedicated some time over the past couple days making party invitations for an ice cream social. As seen above, the front says "Here's the scoop..." in Gelato Script by Schizotype Foundry.

I bought a set of blank greeting cards (package of 8) from Michael's dollar bins. Then I just collaged on the front covering the original picture and voila! Inexpensive cards with envelopes at the ready.
