Monkey Coffee Break

Hello and thank you for stopping by!  I always love a good scene card and I came up with the idea of "Monkey Coffee Break".  Of course my monkeys are mischievous and are fighting over the cup of coffee!
Simon Says Stamp SSS Sketchy Lines Background Stamp plus Alcohol Lift Ink.

I am so excited to be joining the The Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!

My card process:

  • My first step was creating this fun background.  I started by making an alcohol ink background with blues and greens.  After the panel was dry, I used Simon Says Stamp Sketchy Lines background stamp with Alcohol Lift Ink to create the striations in the background.  I really like the end result.
  • Next, I stamped the images, colored with Copic markers and die cut.  The monkeys are from Photo  Play "We Bought a Zoo".
  • I wanted to frame the vignette so I used MFT's Stitched Rectangle dies.
  • I embossed the sentiment:  Simon's Says Stamp - Beautiful Ride.
  • I adhered the monkeys and frame with foam tape.
I think this is a fun card and I am so pleased to be submitting it to the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

I am happy you stopped by!
