I bought these great images from Dustin (link in my sidebar) the other day and just couldn't wait to use them. I just love these cheeky monkeys! I have followed the sketch over at Sketch Saturday and also decorated the inside so I could use the second image too.
I am fast becomimg a huge fan of Dustin Pike's work and I love working with his images, they are great to colour and can be used for lots of different occasions.
I wanted to use some bright fun papers with this images because the images themselves are so much fun and I think they go great with bold colours. I have had the stripy Basic Grey paper for ages but have never been brave enough to use it so I thought I would just go for it today. I have followed the sketch just as it is on the front of the card except cut my image out instead of using a circle.
I have showed all of the inside of the card because I decorated all 4 sides but didn't take a pic of the back because it's just plain. I haven't really followed the sketch through to the inside but i have used some of the same elements to tie it all together, like the same papers and the flower arrangment. I didn't want to make it too fussy because I think these images should be the main focus so I just used a couple of flowers on the inside and stamped a swirl just so it wasn't really plain.
I think I will have to make a few more cards with these images. I have so much ideas for them :)
