Hi friends – welcome back for another collab post from Hero Arts and Ellen Hutson!
Seriously – this sock monkey!!! Did you have one growing up? I know we did and they are just adorable. I had a ton of fun making this card, it’s very simple…and I even got some subtle, very subtle, texture going on!
I stamped the image on the front of the card and colored with Copics, I also outlined it with a sharpie as I didn’t get the best impression. I cut an additional piece of white card stock and added a circle and circle border to allow the monkey to peek through. I stamped the balloon on designer paper and adhered it to the very top panel which was added using foam dimensional adhesive tape. I added a Hero Arts sentiment to the bottom of the main panel, then embellished with a Hero Arts stencil and matte transparent embossing paste – such a subtle hint of texture. Final touch was the fun red and white twine and enamel dots!
