Merry Monkey

This is my first go at trying out a sketch over at Stampin' On Tuesdays and I've been itching to ink up my cute little monkey, so I decided to give it a whirl.

I paired this sketch with the challenge over at Our Creative Corner and monkey see, monkey do, here's my bit of Christmas warmth and cheer!

The sunshine was playing tag with my sparkles, so I snapped a pic then stuck my card on my Christmas tree for the rest of the photos, before hanging the decorations.

My background trees were already so beautiful on the Frost Wood DSP, so I just cut them out and layered them on this fun flannel looking red and green DSP from the same pack. I stamped the sentiment in black and then just the Merry in Versa Mark, hitting it up with a fun Cherry Cobbler embossed shine. The little monkey has bits of Crystal Effects on all his furry white accessories to add a bit of shine since I already had quite a bit of sparkle.

Ink - VersaMark, Basic Black
