Sweet Monkey Baby!

Hi Stampers!

It is time for a new Loves Rubberstamps challenge! This week we have TWO Guest sponsors as well as the Loves Rubberstamps prize so it is an awesome week to play along with us! This week we have a really fun challenge to make your stamped image 3D by cutting out pieces of your image and layering them on top of each other to create dimension. This really gives your stamped images a really cool look! If you have never tried it before...I am warning you it is totally fun and you will love how it looks! Even popping just a few pieces can make a real difference!

Here is my Inspiration card...

That sweet little Mrs. Monkey is one of the prizes this week from our Guest Sponsor C.C. Designs! In my project she is a baby not a Mrs. - LOL! I colored the monkey using the copic sketch marker 6 piece skin tones set and the outfit is colored using the Color Fusion 2 trio. To layer my image - I took four images and colored different parts to pop the pieces up. The bottom layer is her tail and ears, the second layer is her body, the third layer is her face and belly, and the 4th layer is her hair and bow and her skirt. I layered them with glue dots because I didn't want them really wide apart. Here is a side view so you can see my layers better...

Isn't that awesome? For the baby bottle I used the Baby Bottle Shaped Card 1 Template from The Cutting Cafe. I used the Simple Stories paper pack - Baby Steps to make it. That adorable banner sentiment is from the same paper pack. I love this saying and think it would be fun to do an art journal page or something for this quote :)

Here is a close up of the quote:

Yes...it is a Winnie the Pooh quote but it is still awesome! Plus - who doesn't love Winnie the Pooh?

Here is a closer look at Mrs. Monkey... or in this case Mrs. "Baby" Monkey :)

I hope you enjoyed today's project and I look forward to seeing your popped 3D image when you play along with us :)

Have a great day & happy stampin'!
