Clearly Besotted Teasers | Monkey Business

Hello there and welcome to day four of the Clearly Besotted Teasers for the July 2018 release. All of the new products release tomorrow at 8pm BST. I have one last teaser to share with you today, using the new Wild Times stamp set. This is a fun animal themed set that is a stamp layering set.

I started off by stamping the monkey from the Wild Times stamp set. I used PTI Fine Linen ink for the bottom layer and Dark Chocolate for the top layer. I then fussy cut him out with scissors, but don't worry, there is a coordinating die set available, and set him aside.
I took a circle of watercolour paper that has been cut with a SSS Stitched Circle Die and blended over Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks on to it. I then placed the Tropical Leaves stencil from Newton's Nook and secured in place with low-tack tape. I blended the same colours of Distress Inks on top, adding in some Lucky Clover to the edges. The side was then cut down with a guillotine. This was added to a white A2 card base that has a layer of woodgrain cardstock on the front, as well as a strip of black and white patterned paper to the side.
I took the sentiment from the A Little Sentimental set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. This was cut in to a strip and added to the card with thin foam tape. The monkey was then added on top with more thin foam tape.
