Monkey Love and AmyR Sketch #46

It's been a long time since I've participated in the AmyR sketch challenges so I'm really glad I finally got this one done!

I really adored the monkeys from The Greeting Farm's Best Mates set, so I was thrilled when Marie included this monkey in the Sweet Deal set. I gave him a little love letter to hold from the Wishing Tree set and added the sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Sweet Love set.

I stamped and colored the monkey with Copics, then masked him to do the pink airbrushing, leaving the Nestability in place for that neat white edge.

The patterned paper is from the Scenic Route Loveland collection, the ribbon is May Arts, the ghost heart is Heidi Swapp, and the button is Daisy D's.

A little note: the bow is a bunch of little pieces put together to make a bow. Since this ribbon is so wide, I find it a little difficult to make a really nice little tied bow. I took a big loop and then taped a tiny bit around the middle, then added two bits of tail underneath. I think it looks much neater than any bow that size that I could have tied.

Looking at the finished card, I do think the giant bow is too much, but I'm still trying to find my mojo, so I guess it's not that bad! TFL!!
