Bugaboo Stamps Birthday Monkey

You know... I've never been too fond of monkeys or coloring monkeys until I discovered Jodie's Bug A Boo Stamps monkeys!  I've had a change of heart about coloring monkeys.  

I know, I'm weird!  But it's a fun kinda weird!

For my card I used one of the cute monkeys in the Birthday Monkey collection and my card is for our Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps Midweek Throwdown challenge this week.  The theme is Cards 4 Kids.

I colored the image with Copic markers to match my digital paper I found recently at My Grafico.  Copic markers - YG01, YG093, W0, W1, R27, RV25, RV23, E42, E43, E44, E74, E71, E70, RV00.

My layout is SC314 from Splitcoast Stampers.  The other cardstocks I used are Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz & Stampin' Up! Old Olive.

That monkey looks like he's up to no good! Your coloring is great and the layers are a great backdrop for him. Just wonderful.

Such a really cute card, as usual your coloring and your eye for dp is fantastic! I love how the digi matches your paper!

I've always found monkeys very hard to color so I understand how you feel. But for someone who did not like monkeys in the past, you did a fabulous job with this one. Your colors match the papers perfectly. Nice job.

Too cute! And too funny about not enjoying coloring monkeys. I'm not much of a coloring person, but with paper-piecing, I find that using two browns for monkeys can be annoying - to have contrast between the papers and also wanting the eyes to show. Glad we could "meet" via blogs :) - Mindy
