Let’s Hang Out…..

Hello there. A new challenge is beginning at The Alphabet Challenge. We have reached the letter ‘M’ and Meg has chosen the theme of anything beginning with the letter ‘M’ – here is my card:

I think my ‘M’ is quite obvious – using these Clearly Besotted Monkeys on my slimline card.

The monkeys themselves were stamped with Gina K amalgam ink, then coloured with Copics. I knew I wanted a three window slimline card – so I could get as many og these little monkeys in at once, and then turned to thinking about the background of those circles.

I thought about ink blending, then remembered this scene stamp – also from Clearly Besotted, so I stamped it twice, then coloured with Copics, then die-cutting with a stitched circle in a different area of each scene I had stamped for some variety behind each monkey.

The third circle is using a branch from the same stamp set so I could have the monkey swinging from it, again coloured with Copics.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set – using some stamp surgery to cut it apart – something I actually don’t have a problem with – though the first few times I did that I was a little nervous – not any more!

I hope you can come and join us with your ‘M’ themed creations, and I look forward to seeing you in our gallery. xx
