Monkeyin’ around!

At Passion for ProMarkers the theme was ‘all creatures great and small’.

This lovely digi stamp is actually a freebie from Mo’s Digital Pencil.It’s quite funny really as my youngest quite often adopts this position too!And he’s a cheeky monkey!

The only problem I had was we don’t really have much in the way of a graphics programme as my DH thinks they’re too expensive.So this was as small as I could get him.

I’ve used Ivory and Blush for the skintones plus a little Cocktail Pink for his flushed cheeks.His fur is a mixture of Putty,Tan and Caramel.I tried to get a furry effect with the pens and also feathered over the outline a little to give a more hairy look.His shorts are shaded with Duck Egg,Denim Blue and Midnight Blue.I also used a small amount of Khaki and Blender to create a shadow under him.To take away the whiteness of the card and to add to the distressed feel I also used Denim Blue dabbed onto an acrylic block and applied with the chisel end of the Blender.The papers are all Making Memories and have had the edges distressed with the Tim Holtz tool.I cut a Sizzix hinge,distressed the edges and fixed it in place with some white brads.The circles,cut from Nestabilities, are held together with I giant brad which I stamped a greeting onto using Stazon.It does say Hello Cupcake but I masked off the part I didn’t want to use first.

I did actually make this card first and although I quite like the finished result I wasn’t sure about the colouring on this image and it is quite small.The image has been coloured with Putty,Tan and Caramel for the Pink Cat Studio Kiki Kitty.I’ve used Powder Blue,Arctic Blue and Cobalt on the hat and scarf with Leaf Green for the spots.The flower has been coloured using Oatmeal and Peach.The papers are K & Co,the card is Core’dinations Gemstones.The ovals have been cut using Nestabilities and the Martha Stewart Zig Zag edge punch,large corner rounder punch and two flower punches have been used too.A length of cream organza ribbon and some Papermania Adhesive Shimmer Dots to finish.
