BLOGGERS CHALLENGE #95 - HANG IN THERE!

HAPPY FRIDAY! My weekend looks like it may be quite the crazy one, but I am hoping to do some stamping on Sunday. We are celebrating my brother-in-laws 50th birthday, so it will be FUN!
Todays Bloggers Challenge is a COLOR CHALLENGE. The colors we are supposed to use are Artichoke, Chocolate, Sage, Sahara Sand - nuetrals
I was monkeying around and decided to use my brayer. I put the Cuddlebug folders through the Big Shot, then used my brayer over the lifted area with the ink pads. I colored the monkey from Whipper Snapper (isn't he cute?) with my Copics....Be sure to click on the icon for the Bloggers Challenge on the RIGHT HAND side of the screen to see everyone elses WONDERFUL work!
I hope you have a FABULOUS weekend!

Chris this is adorable!!! Love your little monkey and I really love the brayer technique. I don't have a brayer, but I like to do what I call 'smudging' ink pads on textures. I get a similar effect. You can see I used this technique on Tim Holtz Grungeboard here and here. I'll have to give your color challenge a whirl! Thanks for the inspiration.

Betty aka ZacksNana said...
