Reach for the Stars

Happy Friday!  I'm having such fun with the new stamps (and many new-to-me) dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  There's a fun variety - something for everyone.  Go check them out!

Today, I used Jungle Cuties for this card:

The monkey is colored with Copic markers:  W0, W2, Y21, Y23, E31, E33, V20, V22, and the leaves are colored with G40, G43.  For the frame around the image, I cut a fitted rectangle from the dove grey soft finish cardstock adhered the image to it.  I then used two of the stitched rectangles to cut the upper frame from the perfect purple soft finish cardstock.  I used pop tape to adhere it.

Then, I created the background with the little dots that come with the stamps and colored them with Y23, G43, and V22.  How fun is the background?  I wasn't terribly careful with lining it up or coloring the dots in any order, and I like the random feel of it!  I stamped a sentiment from the Dream Sentiments set and die cut it with the circles dies.  Then, I die cut a dove grey dotted scallop circle and just used it as a little off-set.  Here's a close-up of the background:

My supplies list is below.  Thank you SO much for stopping by!

Craftily yours,
