One Monkey, Two Cups, A Million Dots

These little monkeys are so fun to color and always bring a smile! I have no idea where I pulled this color combo from! I started with the Red Polka Dot paper and it went from there...After coloring Changito with Copics and outlining with Copic N1, I added some polka dots on the mugs and coated them with Crystal Lacquer. More dots around the Nestie circle and some Faux Stitching. Then I happened upon the Black and White Ribbon.... well I used it all up! A little Cuttlebug Action with my favorite folder Swiss Dots and lots-a-layers! Finished card size is 5 3/4" Square.

  • Stamps: Changito and Coffee by Stampendous, Sentiment by Hero Arts #C2772
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black
  • Paper: Red Polka Dots by Imaginisce Twitterpated Collection, Black, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Teal
  • Other: Black and White Polka Dot Ribbon, Red Satin Ribbon, White Gel Pen, Silver Pearls, Spellbinder's Double Ended Tags, Spellbinder's Classic Circles, Paper Piercer, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Folder
