Changito Birthday

Hello everyone, I went back to University today after my two weeks Easter break. I really wish I wasn't back!!! Anyway, on to the card. I have made this for my dad using the clear Changito the Monkey set. I have stamped him out hanging on to a vine and coloured him in with Copic markers. I have stamped the hat on to another piece of card seperately, coloured with Copics and cut out before adding to the image. I have then cut the image out and mounted to brown CS. This has been added to base with DST. The base has been made by simply layering up brown Doodlebug CS on to a large square card blank. I have stamped the sentiment (from the new PB Salutations set) and mounted this with CS and added to base with 3D foam pads. I have also added 3 brads to the bottom right hand corner to finish.

STAMPS: Changito the Monkey set - Stampendous, Salutations set - Penny Black. INK: Airondack Pitch Black. CS: Craft Creations card blank, Doodlebug, Craftwork Cards. ACCESSORIES: Copic markers, Papermania brads.

  13. I really like this Michelle. Sent off for some of these gorgeous little monkey stamps from the U.S. (as they were much cheaper than here) and can't wait for them to arrive : )
