Happy Birthday Monkey!!

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
DT Theresa here from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog -- YAY for me... 😃

Today I thought I would share a Birthday 
Card I made for a Teacher at School --

I got real inky making this card -- I'm using the ADORABLE
Monkeying Around Stamp set by Raisin Boat

Here's how I made it --

I started by Stamping the Monkey Image in Memento Rich Cocoa ink
Then I stamped the second monkey on some masking paper - then cut it out
I covered my Brown monkey with the masking paper then
proceeded to stamp the Balloon strings in Memento Tuxedo Black ink
I wanted them to overlap in my monkey's hand

Then I stamped my balloons in Memento Teal Zeal, & Lulu Lavender
Then in Hero Arts Soft Pink, & Ultra Pink
I made masks for my Balloons as well
because I wanted to create the cloud background --

Once everything was masked off -- I pulled out my
Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass, Broken China, & Faded Jeans
then I grabbed my Mini Cloud Stencil
I worked from the top down, using the darkest color first
and I kept rotating my stencil so my clouds would
be different on each row --

Once I finished stenciling, I sprayed my card design with some
Frost Shimmer Spritz Spray and dabbed it up with a paper towel
Then I used my Heat tool to dry my card piece completely
after it was dried I pulled the mask pieces up to reveal
my images -- 

I felt my Balloons and Monkey needed SPARKLE
since I was giving this to a female teacher -
So I pulled out some of my Spectrum Noir Sparkle
Pens in Rose Quartz, Pink Garnet, Inspired Violet, & Blue Topaz
and colored up the balloons with them --
Then I used my Clear Wink of Stella pen on my Monkey

I used my Black Micron Pen on the balloon strings, just so they 
would POP more --- After I was happy with my design
I die cut it out with a Stitched Rectangle die -
Giving me a 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 card piece

I triple tied some Pink Twine and attached it by the
monkey hand with some Multi Medium glue --
Then attached my card piece to a piece of Fun Foam
so it would give it more dimension --

I found a matching Pink Cardstock piece - And die cut 
 a Scalloped Stitched Die with it
Then I attached the pink Scallop to my White card base
 I added my Monkey design to my card base and then
I Die cut a Stitched Banner and stamped
the Happy Birthday Sentiment 
Attached it to my card front and that was it!!
