Cheeky Monkey!

I won a gift certificate for my ABC Christmas Challenge DT buddy Lacey's Stamp & Create store a few weeks ago onTop Tip Tuesday...it took a while for me to decide what to spend it on, but eventually, I chose some High Hopes stamps. My package arrived last week, and I had a play with some of them at the weekend...frst up is 'Cherry Chip Chimp'. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then added Glossy Accents to the cherry. I embossed some blue Core'Dinations card using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' & 'Spots & Dots' and Craft Concepts 'Cupcakes' folders...lightly sanding over the raised areas. I distressed the edges using inks and my distressing tool, and added a sentiment from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts.
