Monkey Message Board

Hello High Hopes Fans!!!
 
Happy Saturday Friends!  Here's a birthday card for that special guy in your life...
 Lisa 
 
This is Monkey Message Board (R141) and part of Swinging Birthday sentiment (H191).  Such a cute monkey!!!  Different sentiments could be stamped on the board, depending on what type of card you are making.
 
I started by colouring the image with Tombow Markers and water. After the image was all coloured and dry, I applied some Zig-Wink of Stella clear glitter on the leaves.  I love the bit of sparkle that this gives to the card.
 
The pattern papers are from Carta Bella - Work Hard 6x6 Paper Pad, along with some SU Kraft and White cardstock.  The image was cut down to a smaller size to better fit this card.  SU Chocolate Chip Ink Pad was used along with a sponge dauber to ink the edges of the image.  The sentiment was stamped with a Versamark Ink Pad and Black Embossing Powder was applied then heated.  Foam tape was applied under the main image to give this card some dimension. To complete this card, a bunch of YNS Gumdrops - Love Me Some Latte were added.  I hope you like today's card!  

Supplies Used:
Ink - Tombow Markers - 969, 977, 990, N79, 761 and 126.  Versamark Ink Pad, Black Embossing Powder, and SU Chocolate Chip Ink Pad for sponging.
 
Paper - Carta Bella-Work Hard 6x6 Paper Pad; SU Kraft and White Cardstock.
 
MiscGlossy Accents, YNS-Love Me Some Latte Gumdrops, Zig-Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen, Sponge Dauber, Water BrushFoam Tape and Glue Dots.
