Make em Laugh

Morning all.
Today is Tuesday so I have my DT inspiration for our new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz to show you. As today is April Fools Day it has to be:-


As we are a male orientated challenge I couldn't use my witty girly stamps so I had to use those little grey cells and eventually while looking for something totally different I came across a sheet of photocopiable images that were in a very old Simply Cards and Papercraft magazine I had saved. They are by David Parkins -Mythical Creatures. I just fell in love with this cheeky little chap and the sentiment that went with it.

I coloured him using Copics as usual:-

Paint drips - red - R22,27,29
                    blue -B12,14,18
                       yellow -Y11,15,17
                         green - YG11,13,17
Monkey - E40,41,42,43,44,47,49,93,95

The background was made using a Tim Holtz stencil, Splatters and DIs, Squeezed Lemonade, Tumbled Glass, Festive Berries and Peeled Paint. As it looked a little flat so I trimmed about 5mm off the background and die cut a circle out then mounted the cut out on the base card and the main background on pads. The sentiment was cut out using a Spellbinders labels 8 die. I fussy cut out the monkey and glued him flat onto the background.

I shall enter him in the following challenges:-
Allsorts -Use your dies
Sketch Saturday - Sketch free for all #286 ( inspired by Jen's DT inspiration)

So that's about it, why don't you pop over and see the other DT's inspiration and have a go.
