Today's image really speaks for itself and it is called Grumpy Monkey.
I've made this card for the soon to be Father in Laws birthday and we have often said he is like a big Silver Back Gorilla.
I cut the panel around him just a little smaller than he is and fussy cut around the over hanging edges. I used loads
of different Woodware punches and Marianne Design dies to create all the leaves he is nestled
in from different shades of green card.
I tried to keep it manly with lots of Kraft card and wood pattern paper from DCWV collection and had to
resist my usual adding of gems and glitter. Although if you look closely
there are a few glittery leaves...There has to be a bit of shimmer in
the Rain Forest right?
I used a stamp from Stampendous Changito collection to print the leaves across the top and also the banana's.
I die cut Happy using a My Favourite things dies from Celebrate collection with Black card and then stuck the white Doodlebug letters on to spell out Birthday. Finally I added the kraft effect letters from Hobbycraft to say "Dad".
I used all the Ice Grey range of Promarkers to colour the Grumpy Monkey using lots of little dots.
