Sock Monkey Thanks - DIC114
Hello all!! Thursday again and time for another UDI inspiration project. Check out the UDI Blog to see the inspiration piece, a collection of cereal box covers, and play along if you have time. To be honest, when I saw the inspiration piece for this week, I was a little scared!! I thought, "What am I going to do with this?" Well, after I took a deep breath and calmed myself, I focused on the one thing that jumped right out at me: COLOR! Bright and bold colors. And bold and bright colors mean fun, at least in my book!!
So, I looked through my stamp collection and took out Sock Monkey. He's fun and playful and makes for fun image to create with. He's a lot of fun to paper piece with and watercolor. And, of course, I had to buy the new More Monkey Accessories in the new catalog. The hat he's wearing comes from that set.
My sketch is from the weekly sketch on Stampin' Connection, which a site just for SU! demos. My card is 5 x 5 square and the base is from Pacific Point. I pulled colors from most of the cereal boxes and put on here! I couldn't seem to stop, yet they all go together wonderfully on here. At least I think so. The colors I used are: Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Real Red and Very Vanilla. The dsp is Newsprint and my goal was to mimic the words on the boxes.
A lot of dimension going on here too! The balloons are popped up and I used linen thread to "tie" them all together. The Daffodil Delight strip is from the Tasteful Trim die, available in the Holiday mini.
Don't forget to check out the UDI Blog and play along!
