Though I'm usually quite fearful of CAS cards, this one just came together as I was "monkeying around" with two new stamps from Rubbernecker Stamps.
Both the monkey and the "monkey around"sentiment are from the 2011 Animal release from Rubbernecker.
I stamped the monkey onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Marvy black dye. I colored the image with Copic markers, and some slight colored pencil shading. I then cut around the image with my Cutter-bee scissors.
Next, I cut and embossed a rectangle from a Nestabilities die. I sponged Adirondack Lemonade and Adirondack Willow dye inks onto the rectangle. I created the "vine" with Baker's Twine and draped it over the rectangle.
The card base is of kraft cardstock, and the sentiment was stamped also with Marvy black dye ink.
After a busy week of trips to Cincinnati, Dayton and Cleveland (Hollo's !!!), I have some time this week to monkey around in my stamp room, so visit my blog again soon to see some new creations. Thanks for visiting today!
