Monkey Coffee Break

Hello and thank you for stopping by!  I always love a good scene card and I came up with the idea of \”Monkey Coffee Break\”.  Of course my monkeys are mischievous and are fighting over the cup of coffee!
Simon Says Stamp SSS Sketchy Lines Background Stamp plus Alcohol Lift Ink.
I am so excited to be joining the The Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

My card process:

  • My first step was creating this fun background.  I started by making an alcohol ink background with blues and greens.  After the panel was dry, I used Simon Says Stamp Sketchy Lines background stamp with Alcohol Lift Ink to create the striations in the background.  I really like the end result.
  • Next, I stamped the images, colored with Copic markers and die cut.  The monkeys are from Photo  Play \”We Bought a Zoo\”.
  • I wanted to frame the vignette so I used MFT\’s Stitched Rectangle dies.
  • I embossed the sentiment:  Simon\’s Says Stamp – Beautiful Ride.
  • I adhered the monkeys and frame with foam tape.
I think this is a fun card and I am so pleased to be submitting it to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

I am happy you stopped by!

WWC207 – Helen\’s Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

I wanted to try a girly card in slightly non-traditional colors, in this case, oranges and lime greens.  I came up with the idea of a confetti background forming a square with some pattern stamping for the focal point.  I used WPlus9 Doodle Buds, Sunny Studio Tropical Paradise and SSS Beautiful Ride floral stamps.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Year 2 Birthday Turtle.

WPlus9 Doodle Buds

I colored the images in with Copics and then used the markers to make the confetti background.   I then embellished with tiny gem stones on four of the flowers.

I hope you will stop by Watercooler Wednesdays Challenge to see what the other artists have created.  This week is Feminine Anything Goes which is such a fun prompt.  We would love to see your creation!

I entered this card in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge \”Add Some Red\”.   I used Copic R20 and several shades of yellow-red.

Thanks for stopping by!
