Stampin' Sisterhood, Monkey Valentine

There's a lot going on this weekend with Rubbernecker Stamps! If you are looking for my Kittie Hop post, scroll down or click here.

If you are looking for this week's Rubbernecker Stampin' Sisterhood Challenge, you are in the right place! Make sure you head over to the Rubbernecker Stampin' Sisterhood blog for this week's challenge. Remember, if you play along, you will have chance to win a FREE STAMP from Rubbernecker and be queened Sunday Sister. And, at the end of each month, all the month's Sunday Sisters will be put in a random drawing to win a STAMP SET from Rubbernecker Stamps!

This week's challenge is an inspiration photo:

For my card, I decided to use the heart shape and the light pink color from the inspiration photo.

I stamped Rubbernecker's "Monkey" (SKU:569-17) with Marvy black dye onto X-Press It cardstock. I colored the image with Copic markers and cut around the image with my Cutter-bee scissors.

I cut two hearts using Nestabilities dies. They were embossed as well, and I sponged Distress Ink Spun Sugar and Whispers Whisper Pink dye inks onto the hearts. I adhered Baker's Twine to the hearts so that they would appear like balloons, with the cute monkey holding onto the balloon strings.

Patterned paper from Pebbles was paper pierced and the balloons and monkey were arranged onto this panel. I stamped the Rubbernecker sentiment "Monkey Around" (SKU:568-14) onto this panel with Versafine Onyx Black.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I do appreciate it and hope you'll play along with the challenge too!
