I have had this little Monkey from Jane's Doodles coloured in for ages sitting on my desk waiting to make a card but never seemed to get around to it. The theme this week on the Passion for Promarkers blog challenge is 'All creatures great and small' so it seemed the perfect opportunity to make a card with him.
This card was a little bit of an experiment and I am not 100% sure it works but I thought I would blog it anyway. I coloured the Monkey with Promarkers and cut him out with his branch. I then cut a label shape from cloudy K+Co paper and matted it on to a green label layer. The whole thing was mounted with foam pads on to a matted and layered wood effect background. The monkey was then stuck on top. I mounted his body on foam pads and glued the branch straight down to give some depth. The experiment was the leaves which is supposed to look like a tree. I cut lots of different sized Sizzix flowers, inked the edges and then layered them up. I added some paper flowers from John Lewis in the gaps and a little dotty butterfly in the top right. The sentiment is Hero Arts and the gems were from Hobbycraft.
I really love this little Monkey, I think he looks really mischievous :-) He is available from Squigglefly along with the rest of Jane's lovely digi stamps.
I hope you had a lovely weekend.
