I am on team Sock Monkey. I know a lot of stampers out there don't like this little guy but I think he's cute and I'm happy to say he made it into the new Stampin' Up! catalog. And, the artists at Stampin' Up! must like him, too because they gave him a whole new set of goodies to accessorize with! Hee! It is on my list for July 1st when the catalog goes live... until then though, here is a card with the silly sock monkey:
All products by Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
Stamps: Sock Monkey
Ink: Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Versamark
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Real Red, Confetti White cardstock; Greenhouse Gala DSP
Accessories: paper piercer, aqua painter, white Signo gel pen, corner rounder(CM), red DMC thread
In honor of Just Add Ink's current challenge, I got out my needle and thread and did some real stitching on this one. I think the red thread gives it just a little something extra! The monkey is paper pieced on to the background. I softly inked each piece with the new Crumb Cake ink to give it a little more depth.
I know not everyone likes sock monkey... I've had students (Camisha) in classes do this to him:
Hee! He's got his eye on you!
Thanks for peeking and hope you have a great weekend!
