Animal Antics at The Paper Players

Hi everyone! 

Today is Joanne's turn to hostess the challenge at The Paper Players and she chose,"animal antics."

One of my favorite things to do is watching the monkeys at the zoo. Talk about animal antics! I could watch them forever. They always seem to be having so much fun!

 I have a cute monkey die from Frantic Stamper that I cut out to use for my animal antics card.

In fact, I cut out 2, along with some banana's. Then I stamped my sentiment from Technique Tuesday onto a white Tutti Designs dotted nesting rectangle, and a jungle themed paper one too.

I made my google eyes with Nuvo. I made some drops with white first, and then with some black in the centers. I let them dry on my mat over night, and then adhered them onto the monkeys.

I also added some yellow drops!

I just have the urge to say, "Cool bananas!" to this card! And DIY google-eyes? Double cool bananas! Super jungle paper too.

Oh my gosh these little monkeys are the cutest, Laurie! I really love how you made the eyes, too. Can I tell you, I bought two bottles of Nuvo months ago, and I've yet to take the lid off either one? Thanks for the inspiration!

I'm with you! I love watching monkeys at play and these two cuties sure look like they're having a good ol' time! I definitely am going to try to make some eyeballs...what a great idea! Hope you're having a good week ~ Hugs, Annie

Laurie... OMG I can't believe how prolific you are... and each and every card is amazing! I can't even imagine the scope of your die collection... wow. I came to tell you how much I love your little monkeys but there are so many others that are equally amazing... so glad you published your "unpublished" work.

Laurie, one day when we finally meet we can share monkey stories! I am in love with your little duo and what a wonderful way to deal with the eyes. Your nuovo drops worked perfectly! Fabulous card
