Monster Bubbles

What do you think of this little guy? He'll soon be available for FREE once we reach the 400 Followers mark and we're so close!! So far I think this is my favorite color scheme and with this pose you finally get a glimpse of the horns on his back!

I made this card for the Lollipop Crafts challenge this week which features an inspirational sketch to use. There is only a few more days left so come on over to play along! The bites punched out of the card is direct inspiration from Dorcas who participated in the Forgotten Scraps current challenge. She let her monster take a chuck out inside her card and I loved it!

Remember those hearts and wings I did last time with Liquid Pearls? This time I tried pink Stickles Glitter Glue on a wing. It applies evenly but I'm not so sure about the transparency. (Although it worked for this card.) Perhaps if I cover it with decorative paper first? I have a whole package so I'll continue to experiment more.

Did you know? The term framing device refers to the usage of the same single action, scene, event, setting, or any element of significance at both the beginning and end of an artistic, musical, or literary work. The repeated element thus creates a ‘frame’ within which the main body of work can develop. Framing devices are very common in storytelling. They are often employed to hold a story together and provide context, to create interest, to provide resolution and/or to move a story along.

Update: I'm the winner at Cooking It Up With Katie for this challenge!
