I was swinging, on a vine, in the air!

Sharing a fun card I made today featuring stamps from the Cheeky Monkey set from Clearly Besotted.

Over at Animal Friends they are looking for special card forms which inspired me to make a slider card with those cheeky monkeys.  To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch.  I computer generated the sentiment and printed it before I stamped the branch stamp from the Cheeky Monkey set to form one of the elements from the sketch.  I couldn’t resist adding a second cheeky monkey into the corner of the card.

For my colour choice I’ve used the inspirational ones from CAS Colours & Sketches.  My cardstock is right, with my base Stampin’ Up Early Espresso with a second layer of Always Artichoke, which also forms the vine on which my cheeky monkey is swinging.  I still don’t have any Stampin’ Up inks, other than Basic Black, so had to improvise with Distress Inks in colours that were as close as I could get Early Espresso and Always Artichoke for the branch and leaves.  My monkeys bring in the third colour, Pumpkin Pie, this time with an approximate match using Copic markers.
