Space Monkey

Aloha, friends!

We have friends whose daughter & hubby had a baby! They decorated his room with monkeys and space lol! Sweet, huh? I had to make a card, so here is a monkey in space!

I saw the Cheeky Monkeys come on sale at Clearly Besotted. Other monkey images just didn't seem to do the trick. Once these arrived, voila! To make a helmet for the little guy, just draw a simple circle around his head and fill it in with Glossy Accents or something similar. I put the monkey on an Action Wobbler for some fun! He is standing on a sketched out weird semi circle for the moon.

This was about the sixth try to make a galaxy background. The distress oxides just looked too chalky for me. The dye inks lacked the pow factor. I kept trying with regular distress inks and the card is finally finished.

The new mom and dad also picked blues and greens for his room and that is why the front of the card has a green layer and the inside has a blue one. Whew. Diamond stars are all over the envelope and white base of the card. Throw a bunch of clear crystals and call it done!
