Another monkey

As the year of the monkey just started,
I have come up with a few monkey cards.

The monkey image is a free image by Michael Strong
and the sentiment is by Create with TLC.

I used this sketch for my card.
You find it here on the

I also used the colors from the 
but I was too late to add my card :-(

In the background you see a branch with leaves embossed
in the paper and the high parts are colored with a 
bit of vintage photo distress ink.

As for coloring the digital image, I want to share this online 
phototool with you:
You can enter the monkey image
and color it anyway you like!
Then print it and cut it and use it as many times as
you want. Makes it so much easier.

Thank you for looking
and more monkeys are on the way!

Have a creative day!
