Just Monkeying Around....

With the new My Favorite Things stamp sets! When I received this cute set from Kim I knew it would become on of my favorites - the animals are just adorable!!! And as usual her sayings and sentiments are just perfect.

The first card is made with the little monkey and leaves & ferns from the set. I stamped the leaves on a scrap piece of Basic Grey paper using Old Olive ink. The monkey was done with Vintage Sepia Versafine - have you used Versafine ink before??? I was on a hunt for the perfect black ink for the longest time, and finally found it in Versafine - it's a nice BLACK color - not blue or purple, but pure BLACK. I just bought the Vintage Sepia so I could have a brown ink as well, and I really like the soft color of the brown as well!

The second card has a pretty simple layout, which is a bit unusual for me. I liked how the elephant came out, he was colored with Prisma Pencils and blended with blender stumps and baby oil. I created the sky by sponging Colorbox chalk ink directly from the pad. Cardstock colors are Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Black & White.
The third project inspired by a little package of Skittles Gum that my daughters bought - it is the cutest little box! I changed the dimensions so it was wide enough for the jungle image on this project - but my next one is gonna be the same measurements.
Watch for the template tomorrow! Don't forget to particpate in my blog candy giveaway!! Check out the post here, then follow the instructions to make the box. Once you make the box, just post a comment on my site with the link to your creation - then you'll be entered to win!
