OK, I admit it, I love my Cricut!! I love all the options on the cartridges, the fact that I can get unique images from independant people is another wonderful bonus! So why do I like them? Well the fact that I can add so many personal details with my arsenal of markers, inks, pens and glitter for one. This little monster came from the Mini Monsters cartridge by Cricut. To make the letters pop out, I used Copic markers along the inside to deepen the color. I then added a touch of deeper shading with some Tangerine Tango Classic ink. Next I added little lines with a black pen. Higlights were added with a White gel pen. The entire effect is totally cool, and really stands out. The monster follows the same guidlines, but has more sponging, some airbrushing with Copic markers, coloring with Copic markers, Sakura Stardust pen accents along with some accents with gel pen, and Spica Atyou glitter pens. Hope you like it!
