Second Birthday

Hello there.  I have a nephew who turns 2 today and this is the CAS (clean and simple) birthday card I made for him using new/unused (NBUS) Monkeys stamp/die set from C.C. Designs.  

The monkey was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Xpress It cardstock, coloured with Copic Sketch markers then die cut out with the matching die.

browns - E30, E31, E23, E25, E29
reds - R35, R39)

The Impact Alphabet letters from My Favorite Things (MFT) were die cut from a scrap of white cardstock that had been inked with Black Soot distress ink.  For some shine, covered them with VersaMark ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The MFT Impact Number 2 was die cut from Nebula washi tape by Altenew.  It was in my stash and had been adhered to cardstock, covered with a coat of clear gesso and splattered with white gouache paint.  It was also heat embossed with clear embossing powder for shine.  Assembled the card onto a Bristol A2 stitched panel and added shading below the monkey with cool gray Copic markers to finish.

This monkey image is so fun. 😂  Thank you for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
