The Challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps was to make a card using words of encouragement. I fell in love with this little monkey from the Create a Critter Cartridge. I cut him out at 3 inches in a tan cardstock, it was a scrap, so I don't know the brand. I then cut out the outline of the monkey on layer 2 button in a darker brown, again a scrap. I then stamped the face on the monkey using my FIRST Peachy Keen Stamp Set, PK-490 Everyday Character Face and used the biggest one at 1-3/8". I then cut the vines out in a moss green at 4 inches under the accessory button, and then tried to figure out what the encouragement would be, and since he was just hanging there, I came up with the Hang in There! I used the acrylic alphabet letter stamps from Scrappy Cat stamps. I put the letters together on a clear acrylic block and stamped the words. I made a few more of these cards to have on hand, and I found with these stamps that I would stamp each letter separately because they had a lot of acrylic around each letter, and so the words were so spaced out I wasn't liking it to much. I hope you all like my card, and go to Peachy Keen and enter their challenge with me!!
