Cheeky Monkey

Hi there

I'm back to share a card I actually made in January for my friend's son but completely forgot to share it with you here.  I've found multiple challenges to link up to for this one so it's a good thing I forgot about it!

Still a fairly clean and simple design, albeit a little busier than my usual designs.  I haven't really made many cards for children so this was a bit of a challenge for me, but as he loves monkeys I knew exactly which stamp set to reach for.

I started by covering my card base with some green nature themed patterned paper.  Then, on a white cardstock panel I stamped the monkey and sentiment and coloured him in with my ProMarkers.  I die cut the number 8 from a scrap of matt silver cardstock and the leaves from some deep green cardstock which were placed over the whole card and the edges trimmed off.

Materials used:

  • Patterned Paper: Stampin' Up - Summer Smooches 
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Wild Thing
  • Coloured with ProMarkers
  • Dies: Clearly Besotted - Leafy Accents; Papertrey Ink - Modern Numbers

Challenge entries:

Penny Black and More - March Challenge - Feature a Creature
Simply Create Too - Challenge #104 - Use Green Only (a couple of the DT cards look like they have featured a couple of neutrals so I hope this one qualifies - please disregard if not)
Just Add Ink - Challenge #301 - Just Add Numbers
Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
I Love ProMarkers - Challenge #303 - Use a Number

Thanks so much as always for popping by, I may be back with more tonight, if not definitely tomorrow evening :)
