Monkey business.


So here's the good thing. I have a file FULL of card photos that I haven't had time to upload to my blog! I think it's a perfect time to use them, being that I am camera-less this week!

This fun little monkey stamp is a Whippersnapper design by S. Comisky. It's a good one for practicing your shading on with Copics! I got it in January from Crafts Direct at a girls gathering in St Cloud.
He fits perfectly with Stampendous' Changito sentiments! He's a little more detailed than the Changitos, so I gave him shading by coloring him with a brown Copic (Light Walnut) and then going over him again with the same color, just shading in the outside edges of his body. I left his back lighter, as if the sun was shining directly onto his body straight on.
The paper is by Crate's "Cowgirl" line.
