Ok so that may seem backwards way round when you read it, but when you see my image it actually makes sense.
It's a Book of Little Monsters rather than a Little Book of Monsters. My monsters are alive and coming out of the book, they cute and miniature :D

I've coloured up both versions of the image here so you can see what it looks like for some inspiration. I'm only entering the first card into the challenges though :)
Coloured with Copics, ProMarkers and polychromos pencils I've tried to give the book an aged look.
The design papers for this card are from Studio Light. I've also used some black and red card to break up the papers.
The edges of the image have been distressed, with with a Tonic solutions tool and with Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz. Around the edges I've then doodles a border with pen.
To finish off I've added a sentiment from Scrapienic coloured with black Copic and then a few silver star charms for magic!
Here's the version with the boy.
Once I'd finished himI got out my Sizzix die letters to cut the work surprise into the card. I've then mounted it onto some red card so the words pop and keeping in the the colour of the book.
The design paper is again from Studio Light.
I've again used the same inks to distress and doodled a border. A few rhine stones and star charms finishing off the card for magic.
Hope you love my new image
