Colored Monster Party N Boots

"Knock-Knock. Who can it be? Won't you come in to my Monster Partyyyyyy? Open the door and let's hear you roar - ROAR!" Chorus - Monster Party by Splash'N Boots.

I played along with the Party In Color Challenge over at Dustin Pike's blog. The task was to incorporate 2 of the colors from Dustin's blog header and a Doodle Dragon image in a party themed craft . I chose Dudley green and a darker orange found in the paint drippings above the header. I merged "PresentMonsterB" and "BalloonMonsterB" with We're All Goin' to a Monster Party! The banner on the bottom of the page is "Open the door and let's hear you roar!"

Here's the back story: My four year old son adores the singing ensemble Splash'N Boots. His most favorite of all their tunes is "Monster Party". How excited was I to find a Party Monster set included in the new Blogiversary 2 digital release by Doodle Dragon Studio's. Just perfect to immortalize the Splash'N Boots concert from March. This release by the way was over 200 images for only $20 - WOW!

I used artistic license and bent the rules slightly for this challenge. Technically I didn't make a Birthday themed craft, but the Splash'N Boots concerts are certainly a party for my little guy. As well I may have gone brighter with my 2 blog banner color choices, particularly the orange. Hopefully that will not disqualify me. It was a fun challenge none the less and the largest image I have colored with Copics, so it was great practice. As well it was the first time I ever merged digi's. Photoshop is so much fun!

This last Splash'N Boots show in March, my son won a copy of their new CD for dancing so excitedly during their new single "For the Love of Dance". He now thinks their new song was written specifically for him. The funniest part of his dancing is that he try's to keep his pants up at the same time, but grabs his pants at the thighs. So he basically pulls his pant up to be floods and jumps up and down excitedly mosh pit style. It puts me in stitches every time, it is so funny!
