Patriotic Monkey



Good morning!  We have another fun challenge for you at Tuesday Morning Sketches...it's a great sketch so I hope you will play along.

I went with a Bugaboo sock monkey...I seem to have a weakness for monkeys!  The image is colored with pencils and I've added some subtle glitter to the stars and stripes.  I've embellished simply with buttons and twine.  I like the twist of the Bermuda Bay with the red/white/blue!

Image: Bugaboo
Ink: Printer, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Pure Poppy, SU! Bermuda Bay, Doodlebug DP
Embellies: PTI Buttons, Devine Twine, Martha Stewart "Cararra Marble" Glitter
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Corner Chomper, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will check out the rest of the DT's creations...maybe leave a little love for their efforts!

Thanks for stopping by!

To tell you the truth, sock monkeys kind of give me the heebie-jeebies (too much like clowns), but this is really cute! Love the colors and the die cuts and buttons.
