Cheeky monkey!


The challenge at CRAFTS4ETERNITY this week is make a Christmas decoration!
We have a lovely sponsor this week again...

 The winner will get a lovely selection of ribbons!!


I decided to try my hand at a rosette decoration. I found this lovely paper in my stash, perfect cause it was double sided so I got two for the price of one so to speak lol.
I cut 2 nestie circles, inked one in what should have been orange but my sponge was not cleaned and it came out brown lol. I stamped the PB monkey and coloured him with promarkers.


I did the same on the other side, turned out grey (good tip...clean up after yourself lol) I stamped a sentiment from SeeD Christmas stamps and added some glitter and stars.
I finished with a lovely piece of  orange spotty ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.
Hope you get time to join us, its good fun making something other than a card for a change:)

How clever to have both sides done Pinky, my ornaments always turn around and have a boring backside..
Love the papers and colourings, cute little monkey too.
