Meet Spike

Today's card is a bit of a 'monster'...I used one of the Pollycraft 'Critters'...he's called 'Spike' and although he only has one eye...I think he looks quite friendly. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then added Glossy Accents to his eye. The papers are mostly from the 'Offbeat' pad by BasicGrey, but the stripey one is from the '365 Degrees' pad by Pink Paislee. I (lightly) inked all of the edges, and added a couple of stars cut using my Nesties.
