Let's Go Bananas!

High Hopes Rubber Stamps is a real favorite of mine, so that's what I chose for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS. It's also for this week's High Hopes blog challenge, to make a "guy" card. I think monkeys fit for that category! LOL!!

I started by stamping and masking the big monkey then airbrushed the background and stamped the trees. It's all colored with Copic markers, even the black layer... fauxed with black Copic (I'm running out of black cardstock!)

Now, if you look at the sketch, you'll see a verticle strip, normally I'm a stickler for following the sketch to a "T"!...but this time I just thought this monkey on the vine would look so's verticle and thin like the strip...................worked for me *wink*!

Then there was the #4 layer...what to put there? The leaves and bananas worked perfectly! Lots of layers and cutting, but I think it turned out really cute so it was worth the extra effort.


Stamps: High Hopes
Ink: Adirondack Pitch Black by Ranger
Paper: Georgia Pacific white, Prism Spring Willow dk
Other stuff: Copic markers, Copic ABS, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Cuttlebug/embossing folder, foam dimensionals, scissors, craft knife

Thanks for stopping!
