My favourite hairy monster again!


I had an order for a boy's card, and I was so pleased when my customer chose this monster for me to use - he's such fun to colour :o)  He's from Pollycraft and he's definitely my favourite monster, love him :o)

I've coloured him with promarkers, then added some shading and glow using koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador.  I then added lots of little pencil lines to make him look all hairy!  The papers are free downloaded ones from Bearly Mine Designs, printed onto linen card.  Cardstock is coredinations, sentiment is computer generated, Papermania spotty buttons, stripy ribbon from stash, MS zigzag punch used for the border.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
