Monkey on a Floatie Vacation Card with Lawn Fawn

Wednesday, June 28, 2023

Another unique card from Craft Roulette to share today! I think I should have done a tone on tone with the hexagon background, but I like the colors and it's really embracing the rustic garden colors parameter from last Friday's episode of Craft Roulette. I also have hexagons, a card that is see-through in the arch shaped window and fashionable sunglasses.

I started the card with cutting a hexagon background from green cardstock. I also cut out my window from the hexagon background and my card base, doing my best to make sure they aligned! I added some pink ink to my card base, using a lighter Spun Sugar towards the window opening and Kitsch Flamingo around the corners and edges. Before gluing on the green hexagons, I splattered some metallic watercolors to add a little shine

I stamped my monkey, colored them in with alcohol markers and die cut it out with its coordinating die. My flamingo floatie is die cut from colored cardsotck as well as flowers and a tropical leaf. I assembled my floatie together, tucked in my monkey and add their sunglasses. I wanted some water to pop up my floatie, so I added a piece of dark blue cardstock that was cut with a simple wave on the back side of the card front. After I added my floatie, I tucked in my tropical leaf and added the flowers.

That is when I realized I wanted a sentiment, so I was very daring and embossed my sentiment with white powder - luckily it embossed well and I think the card turned out pretty cute! Let me know how you think I did with the parameters!
