Crazy Paw: Monkey from Mirtillamente Craft Shop for Colour Crazy Challenge on the 11th of March, 2022

At Colour Crazy Challenge for the 
11th of March, 2022, we are sponsored by Mirtillamente Craft Shop.

Here is my card: I have taken a few photos outside in the late afternoon:

As I mentioned, the sponsor for this challenge is Mirtillamente Craft Shop. It is the first time that I have used an image from Evelin aka Mirtilla Libera Johnson. Her online store is a mix of steampunk, vintage and gothic.

I have digitally printed the image Crazy Paw: Monkey on to X-Press It Blending card and then coloured the image with the following Copics markers:
  • monkey - E30, E31, E33, R20, C5, C7, C9
  • banana - YR00, YR20, YG11, Y02, Y08
  • branches - E25, E27
  • leaves - G24, G05
  • background sky - RV42, Y15, Y35, YR00
  • outline - E27
I then die cut the image using a square die from KaiserCraft, which is no longer available. I adhered the coloured and die cut image to a square Kraft card from Envelope Solutions.

I then die cut some grass patches from green cardstock using Grass Patches die from La-La Land Crafts. I adhered those underneath the image and then stamped one of the sentiments from the July 2020 Club La-La Land Crafts kit using Rich Cocoa Memento ink and my MISTI.

As usual, I have drawn some inspiration from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her awesomMonthly Classes and Bonus Classes.
The inspiration for the sky came from Cristena who used to be part of the La-La Land Crafts DT.

Here is a close-up of the colouring before die cutting and after:
