Hambo Stamps Skating Monkey


We have a new Midweek Throwdown challenge at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps starting today!
The theme of our challenge is Monkey's! 

For my card I used Hambo Stamps Skating Monkey digital image and colored it with Copic markers:  E00, E11, E30, E33, E34, E42, E43, E44, E47, E49, C00, C0, C1, G0000, B0000, B000, B00, B01, B02, B14, YG07, R20.  I was wondering what paper I was going to use to match up with my monkey and got lucky - Stampin' Up! Really Rust coordinated perfectly.  I used Nut Brown for matting and card base, the blue is ColorMates Pool and I used Copic X Press It blending card.  

My layout is Operation Write Home sketch challenge #126 that I hadn't had a chance to play with yet.  

I added texture with a Cuttlebug dots embossing folder, three Dew Drops and I stamped "Miss You" from a Papertrey Ink set in Memento Rich Cocoa ink.  The banner ends are also from Papertrey Ink's Double Ended Banner die. 

Hambo Stamps also has a new Hambo Hoedown starting today!  Use a Hambo Stamp and make a card that has a pocket of some type.  

I hope you'll have time to play in each of the challenges this week.

Thanks for visiting my blog today -

He is so cute even though he seems a little unsure of his footing.
