Simon says Fri Sketcher with Silly Monkey

It's been a while since I've posted anything for Silly Monkey but that's because Bryony has been busy clearing out sale stock over the last few months to make room for lots of new goodies. Good news is, the end is now in sight and for those of you who love your Promarkers she has all the new release colours up for pre-order now and I know there will be lots of yummy new stamps soon, including these cute 'Bear Essentials' christmas clear stamp sets.

I got some of them in my DT package over the weekend and just had to ink this one up and thought the Fri sketchers layout was perfect for it. Oh, it also fit's in with this week's Simon says challenge, 'christmas in Aug' :)
I just love this teddy & snowman but all the sets are just so adorable. As the image was so quick to colour in I decided to stamp it out couple of times and decoupaged it. The stamp sets also comes with lots of matching sentiments and borders and I've used some on the inside;

Some of the other sets have circular greetings in them which I love and can see being used lots with other images too :)

  • Stamps: all images and sentiments from 'Bear Essentials 435' clear stamp set available soon from Silly Monkeys
  • Colouring: Copics
  • Paper: Cosmo Cricket 'Jolly by Golly'
  • Tools:circle nesties, EK border punch, various snowflake punches and a sizzix 'sparkle 2' die
  • Others: Decoart snow writer, stickles

  • ***********

    Off to watch a bit of QVC craft day . . nothing tempting so far (have been good and just ordered the Cosmo cricket set as a xmas pressie . . well unless I love it too much when it gets here LOL) but waiting for Prima hour and K & Co later.
