Monster Birthday

I do like bargains and sales. And I especially enjoyed buying around 3,000 Dustin Pike images for $20 (just over £13) at the weekend. And here is one cutie who was in the haul!

I've coloured him with Promarkers and added glossy accents to his eyes (you can't really see as it was rather early this morning when I took the photo!) and added his balloon to a length of wire that I had wrapped around a pencil and it boings around quite a bit!

The monster is the front of the card, and the patterned paper you see behind is the inside of the card.

I've printed quite a few of the images off from the sale, so watch out for those in the future!
