Monkey Fun!

I found these papers at a scrapbook store. It is by Reminisce. I have a couple of monkey stamps--so I thought I would give them a try. I tried coloring the monkey with pencils but I couldn't get the right vibrancy. So I tried my first love, water coloring.

Though, the coloring is not perfect (need to work on my shadows) I was much happier with the end result.

I used chalk/pastels, a sponge dauber and a homemade cloud template for the sky.

Though I am not totally satisfied with this--he looks TONS better than his predecessors.

  • Stamps: Karen Foster Snap Stamps-1/4" Casual, Monkey by Great Impressions
  • Ink: StazOn Jet Black, various dye inks by SU! for water coloring
  • Paper: DP (see above), Garden Green, Almost Amethyst, Chocolate Chip by SU!, white
  • Accessories: Flower by Prima, Brad by SEI, Corner Rounder, Cloud Scissors by Fiskars

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
