Go Banannas

I just love Mike Monkey! Isn't he a cutie?! (I'm afraid I'm in trouble with the new release, too! You can see all the new stamps here and Ila is giving away some of the new stamps on her blog, too. I'm still trying to catch up on all the adorable jungle images from the previous release!)

I started out by stamp Mike. Then, I masked him and stamped the jungle background. I colored everything with copic markers and used the airbrush system to lightly color the sky. Last, I stamped, colored and cut out the banana to put in Mike's hand. I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock and cut it out using a nestability die.

Have a great day!
