A Craftastic Day!

Just Monkeying Around...
This week at Its Crafting Time our theme was a sketch. I found some wonderful papers by Daisy D's with monkeys on! They inspired both the ATC's and a card.

I cut the ATC bases from white card and inked the edges with Memento 'Rhubarb Stalk' ink to pick up the colour from the dots on the paper.

The green paper is the reverse of the spotty paper. The central square is the green paper again, edged with Rhubarb Stalk.

The small monkeys have been fussy cut from the paper and the central monkeys from a yellow spotty version. I used a Kars 1in circle punch to cut them out.

Finally, I added red, clear, and blue gems; and then some blue glitter glue around the edge of the circle.
These ATC's will be entered at:
