Monster Sized

Limited Runs is having another progressive challenge, the image this time is just too funny!  He is a "Smiling Monster".  One of my favorite things about digital images is that you can make them any size you want, you can crop certain parts as you wish and once the image is colored, if you have a scanner you can scan it in and then play with the color.  That is what I did here...all of the above!  First I printed the plain image, then I colored it and scanned it into the computer.  Then I laid it out how I wanted the monsters to be.  For the bigger one I changed it to a more red hue, for the green one I changed it to the greener hue.  The blue monster is the same as what I colored.  I added some Glossy Accents to the eyes and lips and some Stickles to the antanea.  I cropped out one of the balls from the blue monster and used it in place of gems.  I added some twine and punched some orange paper for the bottom.  Here is what I came up with...
