Broni is our CTD hostess this week and her colors of Real Red, Only Orange and Crushed Curry, along with a dark neutral, gave me an "eeeek" moment! But I checked out some of the new Indian Summer BG paper I just received, and found some that was perfect for the challenge.
Now I know this is different from my usual style! Monkeys are not high on my stamping priority list, but I thought with this jungle-like paper, a cute little monkey face peeking out from the leaves would fit the challenge perfectly, so I used a cute little Simon Says Stamp set called Silly Monkey. I also used Fall to Layout #67 from the Clean and Simple blog:
and here's the layout:
The card base is Crushed Curry, with my monkey stamped in Palette Noir and colored with Copics. Nesties, SU punches and some brads finished it off! I hand-drew some lines on the stamped leaves to mimic the leaves in the paper.
Feel free to stop by the CTD blog and submit your own creation using these challege colors; you can link your direct post right there to Mr Linky and be in the running for the Featured Stamper or guest designer!!! If you don't have these exact colors, just use something close! Have fun! And be sure to check out the sponsor info--you could win some blog candy, too!
