I don't really think this monkey looks all that wicked but the colors are! :) This weeks Pals Paper Arts Challenge is to make a Halloween inspired card with the following WICKED poster in mind.
After pulling the following colors from the Wicked poster:
Pear Pizzazz, Basic Black, Whisper White & Real Red
I started out with a Basic Black base, then layered Pear Pizzazz & Whisper White on top of each other to create the background, which I topped off with a REVERSE cut out of the Top Note Die on RETIRED "Night & Day" DSP. My little wicked monkey was stamped in Black & then paper pieced with more "Night & Day" DSP. He of course needed a little hat, so I improvised and turned the party hat from the Sock Monkey set into a little witch hat, by coloring it in and adding a brim. It seemed to blend into the card too much so I layered it with some Pear Pizzazz. The pumpkin was cut out using the small oval punch and I edged each piece with So Saffron to give it a little dimension. I found the stem in my RETIRED pile of stamps from "Carved & Candlelit". A bit of black hemp twine, a sentiment from "Teeny Tiny Wishes", dimensionals & a bit of RED to finish it off!
I combined this weeks Tuesday Morning Sketch with PPA and I LOVE how the colors & sketch worked really well together.
