I started by stamping the silly dog and bird, then colored them with Copics and lastly die cut them.
The background is both fun and vibrant. I ink blended distress ink onto watercolor paper and then I “bleached” circles for a bokeh look. For the bleaching, I took a circle stamp, painted water on with a paint brush and then stamped the circle onto my background.
In my family, boys/men enjoy humorous animal cards so that was my starting point. I stamped, Copic colored and die cut the animals and greenery. Next I die cut the sentiment and then assembled the scene with foam tape. I thought the monkey swinging from the sentiment was fun.
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!
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.
Sometimes a funny card is the way to go. These monkeys make me smile so I thought it would be fun to have them swinging together by their tails. They look like they are up to mischief.
I used PhotoPlay We bought a Zoo stamps and dies. I colored in the monkeys with Copic markers and then die cut. I also cut a frame to define the scene a bit better. I used some pretty textured butter colored card stock for the background because I wanted to keep the focus on the monkeys.
Hello there and welcome! It\’s all about masculine cards this week at Watercooler Wednesday and Dawn is our hostess. I hope you will stop by the website, see what the artists have created and then submit one of your cards.
In my family, men (and ladies too!) enjoy a good humorous card. This dog (Fetch by Photoplay) makes me smile every time I use him. This is a simple one layer panel mounted on a Lilac A2 card.
