What a Nightmare!

I made this little fella for the SCS sketch challenge this week. I know he's homely as he can be but he still cracks me up. This image along with the sentiment are part of the Monster Party set from Storage Units, Ink & More.

I stamped him with Memento ink and colored him with Copic Markers. The polka dots are created by touching the colorless blender pen to the colored area. I used a waterbrush and reinkers to create the "aura"around him and added Glossy Accents to his eye to give it some shine. It is after all his best feature don't you think? :-) To emphasize the nightmarish feeling, I glued on several pairs of googly eyes and drew little sets of eyebrows to go with them.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope your week ahead is a terrific one.
