...could be the catch line for a singles ad...no?
I was up late last night, and was still feeling inspired by this week's Just add Ink challenge #5 - to Just Add Dimension. So I was going back through my Google Reader 3D Ideas file for, well....ideas (while watching Grey's...that diaper bit was so funny...wouldn't you just get a bigger pair of scrubs so it wasn't so obvious?!). Anyhoo...I found this post by the lovely Carol Dunstan, and was hooked....thanks for the inspiration Carol!
During Brothers and Sisters (which I never usually watch...so had no idea what was going on anyway) I sketched up my project, and then during the Winter Olympics I got to work cutting it out. I decorated through Charlie's Angels and assembled right into some other movie which featured BAILEY SALINGER (well, Scott Wolf IRL)....remember him? Party of Five! I loved that show. Now that makes it sound like it was a HUGE project...but you have to know my work flow was rather intermittent.
...I digress, and if I haven't lost you yet...I surely am about to...so without further ado, please meet Mad Monkey Monster:
Plus some mandatory Mad Monkey Monster anatomy shots (how very Grey's of me ;-):
List of Ingredients:
Cardstock: Yoyo Yellow (plain and textured), Real Red, Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turqouise, Basic Black (textured) and Glossy White (even a mad monkey monster has to look after his teeth);
Ink: Elegant Eggplant Classic Ink;
Stamps: Going Buggy - retired (see, right there is about 3/4 hour spent just looking for this darn set);
Accessories: Wide Oval punch, Large Oval punch, 1 1/4 inch Circle punch, 3/4 inch Circle punch, 1/2 inch Circle punch, 1/4 inch Circle punch, Scallop Square punch, Paper Piecing punch - retired, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, Basic Grey Magnetic snaps (which I had to adhere using Crystal Effects otherwise they kept popping off), DIMENSIONALS (but only SIX....not nearly enough!), Crop-a-Dile, Eyelets (for a super heavy duty handle, to handle more loot bag booty), SNAIL adhesive and Mini Glue Dots.
Mad Monkey Monster measures 7 inches tall, 4 inches wide and 3 inches deep, and in case you haven't realised yet, he is a party favour bag. Well, this is my interpretation of his prime function in life. If you want to use him as your toiletries bag, of course, go right ahead, but don't you be calling me when they lock you up ;-).
As you can see, I'm lacking sleep.....so I'm going to go before I say something really, really silly!
Don't let the monkey's get you down :-).
