Love Those Monkies!

Ok, can I say again that I love the Changito Monkies! Those little smiles are adorable! Ok, this card was a labor of love. It took me two days, that's right, two days! The large white flowers in the background are heat embossed and then I sponged Wild Wasabi Ink onto the rest of the bg. I LOVE that technique! I distressed the edges with my Distressing ink from Tim Holtz. The floral stamps are from the retired SU hostess set "Island Blossoms", the monkey is a "Changito" monkey from Stampendous, and the sentiment is from the SU "Wild About You" set. I have never used that many brads on one card but at least I am using my stash of embellies! The ribbon, cs, and DP are all SU. I used my Prisma's and gamasol to color the monkey, and the ovals are my new Nestabilities! I hope you like my card! Also, I finally reached 2500 hits so I will be posting blog candy tomorrow!!! Make sure to check back!

I really love the card. The background is especially gorgeous. I don't have two days to spend on a card, but I might try out that background technique.

LOVE this card Veronica! I got the cute Changito on a tire swing, but he hasn't been inked yet. :( Maybe I will try him out today! This card is wonderful!

Every time I see these little monkeys, I always think they are so cute. I just made an order for some different types of stamps; but will definitely be checking out these Monkeys more closely the next time I'm stamp shopping.
This card is so adorable. I love it!

OK, this card is darling! I love how you have him holding the flower, your Gamsol coloring, that fabulous background that looks like DP, especially with the distressing, all of those brads, and the way you double tied the ribbon...OK, I guess I love it all! Great card! And that monkey is very cute!
