MAWTT Monsters and/or Aliens

This week, over at Moving Along with the Times, Tanja has set the theme of Monsters and/or Aliens. I didn't have any images or stamps of aliens or monsters so tried to draw one myself. One of my sons said that it looked like a skateboard with eyes so it got binned. lol He was eventually persuaded to draw one for me and it looks much better.

I used an 8 x 8 card blank by Joanna Sheen and made a mat of My Minds Eye fence paper. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then cut it out very carefully before centring him on the fence. I surrounded him with Spellbinders die cut leaves in various sizes - he was supposed to look as if he was bursting out of the fence but I'm not sure I succeeded with that!! I generated the sentiment on the computer, added a little bit of red 'blood' and then stuck it in the monster's hand.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments: Anything Goes
Lemon Shortbread: Anything Goes
Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes

    what a very fab card, and you are so lucky to have your Son draw such a great monster for you.
    The design is ace, and so very great.
    That is one thing I would love to be able to do is draw.
    My eldest sister who I lost earlier this year had that talent from my Mum.
