Monster Hugs

We've all heard of bear hugs,
but did you know that monster hugs are absolutely the best beast?

 As far as monsters go, this chap is pretty cool, not too scarey 
and just waiting for a hug.

It's been a few months since I participated in a challenge
however when I saw the theme on The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers
was "M is for Monster", I knew he would be perfect.

 I came across the background which I had pre-done some time ago,
while I was playing around with distress inks on watercolour paper. 
 Then it was a matter of colouring my monster in tones that would stand out
from the background.

I used various Prismacolor pencils, blending here and there
and adding highlights where needed.

The bowtie spots and the buttons on his shirt are Gelly Glaze pens
which when dry, give a slightly raised finish.
His glasses were done with Glossy Accents, as were the sentiment.

I found a piece of dark purple card to use as a mat, 
which was adhered to a folded white card.
