My Little Monster

It's hard to believe Halloween is just around the corner.  I finally had the chance last week to create a Halloween card.  I don't usually make very many of them, but I like to give them to my kids and I needed a couple more.

When I saw this adorable Little Monster image from SP & Company, I knew I had to color him.  He's absolutely adorable!  The image is from illustrator Tina Wenke.  I've always loved her images (she illustrated for Stampavie when I designed for them).

I paired the image with some patterned papers from October Afternoon's Witch Hazel line and added a little black twine and an orange button.

The image was colored with these copic markers:
skin: E000, E00, E11, E13
hair: E33, E37
shoes: YR15, YR16, YR18, 00, C1, C3
costume: BG70, custom marker (3/4 BG70 & 1/4 BG72), BG72, BG75, BG78, G40, G43, G46, G28, Y21, YR30, custom marker (3/4 YR30 & 1/4 YR31), YR31, Y23, YR12, YR15, YR16, YR18
bag: E51, E53, E55, B91, E25, YR15

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great week!
