Donna here today with a funky monkey from Katzelkraft, isn’t he just a cutie?!
What to do:
Apply a thin coat of Gesso to the larger That’s Crafty! MDF heart, dry thoroughly.
Stamp the monkey onto the heart using black Archival ink and then proceed to smear a selection of Gelatos around the monkey.
Place a Dinky stencil over the Gelatos and start removing some of the colour via a moist baby wipe gently dabbed through the stencil.
Next step is to colour in the monkey using a selection of Distress Markers, add some Stickles to his belly for a little bit of bling.
Stamp randomly on the background with some Carabelle stamps.
The 2 smaller hearts were painted with a red Fresco paint, stamped with a Katzelkraft circles stamp, edged with Stickles and the fab Tim Holtz sentiment added…..appropriate I thought!!
Mount the smaller hearts to the larger one, stamp the Carabelle stamp under the monkey so he has something to ‘sit on’, then draw a couple of black lines so it appears he’s holding the small hearts, use a white pen for the little highlights.
Love this little Zen monkey, peace and love with attitude!
