Monkey Doodles

Well, this post is going to be short and sweet, because I have to take DH to a doctor's appointment this morning. I really wasn't very motivated when I sat down to stamp yesterday, so I made this simple (in my opinion) card and called it quits.

I started by stamping the Stampendous Changito monkeys in Ancient Page Coal Black and coloring in with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. Next I randomly stamped the butterfly trail from Papertrey Ink's Little Lady around the edges, sponged with Cameo Coral ink and matted on black and Cameo Coral cardstock.

Next I stamped the butterfly friends image from Tagger's Dozen (SU!) and colored the butterflies with a Cameo Coral marker. I then punched this out with an Extra Jumbo Sqaure punch, matted on black cardstock and then on a Cameo Coral Super Jumbo scallop punch. Next I glued down a strip of cameo coral to the bottom of the 4.25" square cardbase and tied a knotted bow with black grosgrain ribbon. Finally I added some dots around the scallop square and across the bottom edge with a black Glaze pen.
