These little "Birthday Monkeys" are from Rachelle Anne Miller's new 2009 Spring collection and Kelly's selling these in her store so I just HAD to buy these for my little monkey... I mean my 8 year old daughter ☺ She's turning 9 in a couple weeks and she's totally monkey crazy right now, so I think she'll like this. OH WOOPS, just realized I only have 8 candles instead of 9...she'd be the type to point that out too! I generated the sentiment on my computer and candles too. How did I miss that!? LOL. Not sure how this shows up on your computer, but the stamped piece is layered onto purple c.s. -- it matches better IRL. This photo is a little too dark, but when I tried lightening it, all the little effects like the cheeks and outlining disappear, so this is the best I could do. Do you notice how shiny the balloons are? I added Crystal Effects to all of them so they are puffy and shiny :)
I found this sketch over at Paper Pretties, and so my sister and I decided to use it for this week's "Sister Challenge." This will make week 10. She'll be working on hers Tuesday, so as soon as she posts hers, I'll link ya to it. I think she's making a b-day card for my daughter as well?? We shall see! ☺
Have a super day and hope you find time to Ink Something!
