Little Birthday Monkeys

Hello there!  So after three weeks (gotta love the US-Canadian postal service 😝), my Mama Elephant order finally arrived and I couldn’t wait to ink up the Little Monkey Agenda stamp set to create this CAS birthday card.

 

 

To start, stamped the monkeys on X-press It paper with Memento black ink, coloured with Copics and die cut out with the coordinating dies.  These little monkeys were a bit challenging to colour due to their small size, but I persevered. 😉  Next die cut the stitched rectangle panel with the trio of peek-a-boo windows from Whisper White cardstock.  Black heat embossed the sentiment with clear glitter embossing powder.

 

 

For some colour behind the windows, ink blended Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueorint Sketch distress oxide inks on a piece of Bristol smooth paper with a mini blending tool.  Spritz with water and dabbed with a paper towel for a bit of texture.  Adhered the monkeys, then mounted the panel with fun foam on a white top folding card vase for some dimension to finish.

 

 

 

These monkeys make me smile and I have other plans for them. 😂   Thank you for dropping in.  Have a wonderful day!
