Flower Monster

The challenge over at Hambo Hoedown is in full swing.  It's a progressive challenge so head on over there and submit your creation for the challenge, use any Hambo image, and the next image will be free.  Fun challenge and great images.
The challenge for this week is to use something on your creation that begins with the first letter of your first name (and I'm so very thankful my first name doesn't start with something like a Z)!  So...............




Since my name is Lynn, I used some stuff called Liquid Glass from CTMH on the nose and ears of Mr. Monster - and also on the center of the flower.  Of course I just had to color him in one of the lavender Copics too.  I stitched around the polka dot paper and distressed the edges a little.  

I'll enter this in the challenge at Little Miss Muffet (Animals and Monsters) , Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog (Stitching), Stamptacular Sunday Challenge (distressing) and Digi Doodle Shop (distressing).

Thanks for stopping by............and check out the Hambo challenge!
Lynn
