Thanks a Bunch (of Bananas)!

Thanks a Bunch (of Bananas)!

Hello everyone! Justin here, and today I am sharing with you a card that I am truly bananas over! I had so much fun playing around with the monkeys from the Go Bananas set, and knew there were a couple stencils I could mash together to make them even more fun!

First, I colored up (2) of the Monkeys and 2 of the vines from the Go Bananas stamp set with Copic Markers. I fussy cut them out and set them aside.

Note: to avoid having white gaps between my vines, I colored the center gaps to match my background color as close as I could.


Next, I took an A2 sized piece of blending cardstock and placed the Ins & Outs Hollywood Stencil (with the large center opening) and blended a Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn & Rustic Wilderness Distress Oxide Ink ombré. I then placed the new Cheetah Spots stencil on top, and blended a solid layer of Pine Needles Distress Oxide Ink.

Removing the stencil, I covered up my blended section with the Ins & Outs Hollywood Stencil Mask. I then placed the Bananas Stencil over top and blended over the stencil with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink. Using a smaller brush, I blended Ground Espresso Distress Oxide Ink over the stem portion of each banana.

For my frame, I removed my mask and aligned the Ins and Outs Hollywood Frame Stencil and applied a solid layer of Grass Green Glitz Glitter Gel.

Once dry, I trimmed down and arranged my monkeys and vines so the vines didn't stretch past the green portion of my blending. I adhered them all with foam tape. To finish this card off, I heat embossed the sentiment  "love you bunches" onto a sentiment strip, adhered it to my card with foam tape, and then also adhered a few brown sequins for embellishment!

I just love how all these elements came together! This latest release has such a wild and fun theme, I can't help but smile while creating with it!
