Mother's Day Apes

Good morning and a VERY Happy Mother's Day To All of the Mother's out there!! I hope you all have a beautiful day full of doing whatever YOU want to do! That is what I plan on doing :)  Not much of anything but coloring and crafting. Maybe a little tinkering on the pc. No errands, no going out... today is all about us, right? hehehe  Have a wonderful day!!

Today I am posting one more Mother's Day card. This one sold already.









This one is using Flower Monkey from A Day For Daisies. I've colored this image with Copic Markers and I've created the sky using a monthly lesson from Kit and Clowder. I've added several die cuts, the vines, the oval, the butterfly. I cut the yellow flowers to make those pop. I've added some coloring and inking to add some dimension to the die cuts. I've also added some gems to the center of those yellow flowers and small pearls to the butterfly. I've added some small paper flowers, the sentiment is a stamp. These papers were from a pad and the black and papers used for the die cuts are all from scraps. I thought these papers were perfect for this card.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Gorillas: N0, N1, N3, N5, N7, N9
  • Sky: Y15, Y17, YR14, YR16, E15
  • Grass: G21, G94, YG67, G99

Squawk! What a great coloring of the image and the background. Blacks are really hard to do and you achieved a perfect combo of lights and darks so we can see all the cute features of these monkeys. The sunrise behind them provides a great splash of color to frame them. Nicely done toots!
Thank you so much for sharing your project and creativity at 613 Ave C!
