Celebrating with Monkeys!




Hello! Thanks for coming by today! Today I want to share with you some cards that I made for Inky Antics to display at CHA. I am always so honored when Jackie at Inky Antics contacts me to make samples for them. IA has WAY FUN images!!! Recently they re-introduced clear sets and I was privileged to be asked to make samples for 4 of the new sets!!!



Today I am displaying one set named: Monkeys Celebrating. The basic supplies for all three cards are the same. Designer paper is from Basic Grey's 6x6 Marrakech pad. The cardstock colors are Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip. All samples are colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. (Gamsol is brand name of Oderless Mineral Spirits.)



I must admit that the pencil and gamsol method of coloring is not my forte. But, some people can really rock them. Ila is my OMS idol! Her images are always colored beautifully with such detail and depth. I, on the other hand, am "stump" challenged. I can barely stay in the lines with my stumps!! LOL! I wish I were kidding! But somehow, Inky Antics overlooks this and I am thankful!! LOL!

Well, that's all the news I have for today. I think I heard the oven timer ding....maybe those blog yummies are ready.....?!

Have an Electrifying Monday!!

Oh, I love the monkeys and what you did with them!! Adorable cards!!

I actually like Prismas/Gamsol better than Copics. I am better with p/g somehow?!
