Cheeky Lil Monkeys

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Cute

We are showcasing Clearly Besotted Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge.

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!!

You will find a list of all the products that I used as well as my process video down below.

I think I’m in love with these little monkeys now. I used the Cheeky Monkey stamp set by Clearly Besotted and the matching die for the leaves. I decided to color my monkeys on Neenah Desert Storm 100 lb. card stock.

I did a whole lot of masking on this card (mostly unnecessary) but the end results are so worth it! Once I got the images stamped, I used my polychromos pencils to color these cuties.

I added some “jungle” foliage from the Critters of the Jungle stamp set by Lawn Fawn. Once I cut my card front using the Stitched Hillside Borders die from Lawn Fawn, I added some craft foam to it to give my card a little dimension. Then I added a strip of patterned paper to brighten it up a bit and add a little more yellow to my design.

I used a die from Paper Smooches called Foliage 1 to add a little more greenery around the edges. Then I finished it all off with some Dandelion Yellow Nuvo drops.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!

    1. Thanks, Cat!! It’s so funny that the cards that are a little out of my comfort zone are usually the ones that I get the most compliments on. 🙂 I really want to practice more on darker papers like this. One of these days I’ll get brave enough to try coloring on black…

    1. Thanks Lin. I kept trying to make a leafy green patterned paper work, but it was just too much green. When I found this yellow striped paper from Lawn Fawn, I knew this was the one I had to use. 🙂
