I am participating in Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring challenge and this was my first day of coloring. I am sure that I won't always get a card out of it but I am glad that I did today :) I started by stamping out this little monkey on white cardstock and colored him in with copics. When I was done, I restamped (with my misti) because several of the lines faded. I added black enamel dots on the eyes and drew little yellow stars around his drumsticks.
For the dashed edging, I used a straight border die on all four sides and then added the sentiment. I attached the colored panel to a top folding A2 blue card base and added another white panel inside with "happy birthday" and a guitar playing rhino. These little critters are so cute!
And here is a picture of my son working on his project. He loves to stamp although he is like me and isn't as fond of cleaning them off after. He was making a space scene with planets and astronauts and told me he wants to be an artist and lego builder when he grows up, lol.
