Card for Six Challenges

Oh I do like pink and brown together.  This time I have used a Bugaboo digital image of this cute little monkey who is obviously trying to stay in his other half's "good books" by bringing her a red rose!!  I have coloured the image with Promarkers and decoupaged his head three times - cruel I know chopping his head from his body but it is effective.  I have distressed the edges with Tim Holtz's Tattered Rose ink pad - quite appropriate when the monkey is holding a rose - and a chocolate ink pad on the kraft card.  The card is finished off with some pink fibres, card candy and a love ticket sentiment from Bizzy Becs.

This card fits the criteria for the following challenges:

Allsorts - sketch

Corrosive Challenge - distressing

Everybody Art Challenge - favourite colour combo - my favourite colour combos seem to change like the wind but at the moment I like pink and brown - maybe to remind me of being warm with a nice hot chocolate and marshmallows!!

Creative Card Crew - distressing

Quixotic Challenge - Hot chocolate

Simon Says Challenge - Hot Chocolate.
