Not So Scary Halloween Monsters

Have you seen the cute new Halloween images Tracey has just put in the store at The Stamping Boutique?!  They are totally cute!  I just finished a card with her Halloween Monster and had to share it with you!  The monster's three eyes made me think of the "googlie eyes" challenge Sandy issued several days ago at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps so I just had to make this one up first!  

I colored the Halloween Monster with Copic markers, he has a slight skin condition because I was having a hard time blending YG000 with YG11, but that's not unusual for monsters right?  I just happened to have three eyeballs in my stash and I gave him dazzling teeth with Stampin' Up! Crystal Effects.  I wanted to add some Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamonds glitter to his teeth but I would then have glitter everywhere and for Operation Write Home that's a big no no.  My birthday sentiment is computer generated, I was thinking of my kids and I think they'd squeal with delight if they got this for a birthday card! 

I hope you enjoyed this little peak at a new release from The Stamping Boutique!  I'll be making up some more cards with the other Halloween images soon!

A brilliant card! Love the three eyed monster. The use of crystal effects is so fun! I would agree that most monsters do have a skin condition. I did not see any blending issues on your image and I was looking hard. I think it turned out fab!
