It's been a while since I entered a card for


MOJO42 over at Poetic Artistry. Besides being a really cool sketch this week (as always), I wanted to use the ape/monkey stamp designed by Melanie Muenchinger for Gina K. Designs. You want to know why? Well, I'll tell you. Melanie is giving away a a FREE set of her newest design during the Gina K. release party on June 20th. I just didn't want to miss another chance to win one of Melanie's sets. I love, love, love her designs. That's why I had to use this sweet little ape/monkey, why I had to enter the Mojo42 sketch challenge and why I'm telling you all now so you can try to win, too! Just upload your cards at SCS using keyword MMGKD1 so Melanie can find them and randomly select the winner (hopefully me!).

Now for the deets on this card. The base is kraft c/s by SU. I adhered a piece of CTMH c/s from the Carnival collection. The DP is part of Daisy D's Pet collection. I stamped the ape/monkey (Melanie, can you clarify if this is an ape or a monkey so I can stop typing both, please?) onto PTI Select White, using Palette Hybrid Black ink. Then, I cooured it using the Koh-i-Noor Woodless Pencils which are available at Gina K. Designs. I blended it with Gamsol and the stumps. I added the little silver heart as an embellishment. I think I may give this card to my DH for our upcoming 12th anniversary on July 12. I'm pretty sure by then all my supplies will be packed away for moving so I wanted to get it done early.
