The theme this week at Less is More is to be inspired by a film - my title gives mine away but don't fear - no face huggers here - just some cute green critters!

He's from the There She Goes "Out of this World" set and I just masked the central one and stamped a couple of buddies to either side.  Cos it's one layer week, I had to skip my normal copic colouring medium as it shows on the inside and that bugs me, so I went with polychormos pencils and blending solution instead.  The dots are from a sakura glitter pen.  The sentiment is from the same set and, although it doesn't snow so clearly in the photo, is stamped with an appropriately Alien looking neon green ink (Hero Arts)

I might have another go at this challenge late as I'm sure I can come up with something a bit more obscure but this was my first thought this morning.  Off to the craft shop first though so I'll catch you later.
