Minions ... mutated!

What happens when you mix cute minions with a mutated purple frizz?

Besides the fact that your fingers get all inky?

We went to see Despicable Me 2 this past week, so that, plus a desperate need to get all messy and creative to step away from the 150+ swap cards I'm working on getting ready for Convention next week (!!) ... and I ended up with something that makes me giggle every time I look at it! (That and purple ink all over everything!)

To make the mutated minion's crazy hair, I squirted reinker all over some retired Tinsel Trim ribbon ... even though I used a plastic bag to try to contain the ink, I found that it didn't dry quite as fast as I wanted it to, so it ended up all over my fingers!  

I used the Owl Builder punch as the base (and for their hands/feet). The teeth/smile is the largest flower in the Boho Blossoms punch. I even sanded the paper to make it look furry!

The final result? It makes me giggle 'cause I love it so much! 

Supplies used:
Stamps: Paper Pumpkin stamps
Paper: Whisper White, Perfect Plum, Crushed Curry, Basic Black, Not Quite Navy, Silver Brushed cardstock
Ink: Perfect Plum
Tools: Owl Builder punch, Jewelry Tag punch, 1/2" Circle punch, Boho Blossoms punch

  1. I actually came across this on pinterest a few days ago and was super excited to see that it was another one of your minion cards!! This card is so cute :) I love how you made the purple minion!! I've made about 45-50 of the original minion cards already...I just finished a big birthday party order for invitations. So cute but very putsy to make :)
