Birthday Monkey Card (Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

On Sunday, July 29th, was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Kitty Bee Designs and I made this CAS (clean and simple), Birthday Monkey Card. :o)

I didn't share this earlier here on my blog, as I spent last weekend with my family in Bilice near Šibenik. I didn't want to sit by the computer while with them and didn't manage to do that before the journey, so... :o) We celebrated two birthdays: my father celebrated his 60th and my partner his 39th. It was awesome family gathering. :o)

Back to the card...

I made this card for my friend's son Vid, who will celebrate his 4th birthday this month. :o)

For my card I used a SUPER CUTE Kitty Bee Designs 'Max the Monkey' digital image. :o)

I printed the monkey twice, one on a white cardstock paper and second on a watercolor paper. I left images dry through the night to prevent ink smearing while coloring.

I colored the monkey printed on cardstock paper with black marker and fussy cut the tiger. Then I colored the monkey printed on watercolor paper in watercolor technique using Distress Inks. After drying, I fussy cut the monkey, traced edges with black marker and glued the monkey over the "black" monkey. I did this to make the image thicker, as a watercolor paper I use is very thin and doesn't work well with 3-D foam.

Then I heat embossed in white a sentiment on a black cardstock paper. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches 'Sentiment Sampler' stamp set.

I decided to go with same design and layout as on two cards I shared here on my blog last year, here and here. Super simple, CAS as much as it can be, masculine with minimum colors and elements. :o)

Update September 22nd, 2018:
More inspiration.... Layout used also on cards made in the past, here and here. :o)

I glued 2 mm thick foam squares on the sentiment stripe and glued it on a top folded white card base, glued 3 mm thick foam scraps on the monkey and placed him on the card. As a finishing touch, I glued two brown enamel dots on the card.

Card dimensions: 89 mm x 121 m(3.5" x 4.75")
