New Challenge at DoubleClick Skittles - Monsters or Robots

Welcome to another DoubleClick Skittles Challenge!

Challenge #30 - Monster or Robot

Sept. 2 - Sept. 15

For this challenge I decided to go with Monster.  I had the perfect Fancy Pants Design papers and a digital image that I hadn't used yet.

The Skittles that I'm using are Citrus and Believe in Magic.  You know how sometimes you have a little accident while crafting?  Yup, I had a bit of a smudge with my liquid pearls.  What's a girl to do?  Cover it up with a Skittle!  I popped that Citrus Skittle on top of that green smudged mess and covered it up perfectly.  I liked the look so much, I decided to plop one down on the other side too.  I love how Skittles magnifies whatever is underneath it.  In this case, the Citrus Skittles, which are a pale green, were further enhanced by the green liquid pearls.  Bonus!

Let me tell you, I really jazzed up this Party Monster.  I used my Cricut Explore's Print and Cut feature which I love, because you don't have to worry about assembling a bunch of tiny die cut pieces with an svg file.  This monster was green all over so I added some spots of brown and white.  Isn't he adorable?

Skittles come in a multitude of fabulous colors and are handmade in batches in Carri's "lab".  There are 25 of these fun, bubble embellishments per bag and you can purchase most 3 pack sets for under $4.00 or individually.  Plus shipping is FREE in the USA and PAYPAL is accepted.

You can purchase Skittles here:

The newest release, "Believe in Magic" is still available.  Perfect for all your Disney themed projects (Mickey, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.)

Come join the Skittles challenge here.  There's always a fun prize up for grabs and plenty of inspiration.

Be sure to read the rules for the challenge as backlinking is not allowed.
