Marvin Monkey




Hi Folks
Just wanted to show you the card I have made for my nephews birthday which is next weekend. I used Marvin on Vine from Pink Gem, because he likes monkeys and I thought it is a really fun image for a child's card. I stamped him 3 times and, as usual, I used Promarkers to colour him in, then I decoupaged up the image to give it some depth. I raided my stash for suitable papers : Grandpa's golf shirt by Reminisce, Fauna by Doodlebug and a sheet from the 6" x 6" Wild Asparagus collection by MME. The glittery number 7 is from a sheet of stickers by Craft Creatives which I picked up on a good B.O.G.O.F. offer the other week!! I'd like to enter Marvin into the following challenges:
A Gem of a challenge - Special Birthdays - I think all birthdays are 'important' when you are little, it is only as you get older you want to forget a few. I know that Matthew certainly thinks his birthday is special LOL!!
Create4fun - sketch week 18
SophistiCat challenge - #30 - card for a child
Oh Alice - card for a child (chapter 11)
Allsorts - challenge week 50 - Animals
Incy Wincy - Challenge 40 - Anything goes
and Pile it on - #17 Boyish colours - there's no pink on this!!!
