"Cut it up" contest

This sketch by the CutCardStock team was a tough one. When I looked at it first I was so eager to make a card on this sketch; it was so motivating! But when I started making the card that was a totally different story. I was almost tearing my hair apart by the end...I colored and matted an image but that didn't seem to go well, so I'd to color another image...somehow nothing seemed to fit. Even at the end I was not very happy with my production; but when I looked at it the next day, I was quite happy!


I applied some stickle glitter to the PP and on the flowers at the bottom. The monkey seemed to be "in the air" doing nothing so I drew a branch.

  • Stamp: Changito monkey (again an image from an image swap)
  • CS: Bazzill, DP: DCWV
  • Dew drops, glitter pen, Nestabilities, Stickles stardust, Prismacolor pencils, OMS, flower punch.

Very nice! I especially love the way you created the border with punched flowers.

You should have used the techniques from the grounding tutorial :-)

Its always the same for me..I don't like the card when I make it, then like chicken, I let it marinate overnight, and the next day I some how end up loving it..

I love that little monkey...
