August SOTM - Sock Monkey Card

Coucou les amies,

This month's special stamp has set has a lot of images on it.  I chose to use one of the images to make Sock Monkey card. Who doesn't love Sock Monkey right ?

Sock Monkey birthday card

I stamped the monkey image twice in archival black ink on daisy white cardstock. I then coloured him in Shin Han Touch Twin warm grey #4 marker. My friend Carol-Anne showed me how to stipple the colorless blender  marker to get a textured effect like wool socks. I cut out his mouth, popped it up and coloured his lips using   Shin Han Touch Twin R11 Carmine marker. His eyes are 2 black epoxy bubbles. His hat is stamped in cranberry red ink.

The sentiment was coloured using more of the ShinHan markers and matted on cranberry red cardstock. The starred background paper is from CTMH's Chalk it Up collection.

Not sure who to gives this to, but it was FUN to CREATE it.

During the month of August, you can buy this special CTMH stamp set for just $5.00 when you purchase $50 in products or at full retail price of $19.75.
