Just Hanging Around

Happy Friday! Here's another peek at the Itzie Inkies Set Monkey Love by C.C. Designs -- it will be released at All That Scraps tomorrow (Saturday) night at 10 pm. This is the other monkey in the set -- I just love how he's hanging from the branch! I stamped the image and sentiment in Basic Black ink, then I watercolored with an Aquapainter and inks. His cheeks were colored with a Prismacolor pencil. To make the leaves, I stamped the heart from Love Ya Much upside-down with Old Olive Ink. I also used Old Olive to sponge around the edge of the circle. I added dots to the scallops with a white gel pen, then finished the card with Old Olive ribbon and brads.

We have a busy weekend ahead -- Kyle is in the next round of his basketball tournament tomorrow, and I have lots on my "to do list" that I need to get finished! Hopefully I'll sneak away for a little stamping, too! Thanks for visiting -- have a great night and a fantastic weekend! :)

Stamps: Monkey Love, Love Ya Much (C.C. Designs) Ink: Basic Black, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive, So Saffron (SU!) Cardstock: Regal Rose, Old Olive, Whisper White (SU!) Paper: Petals & Paisley (SU!)
