Heartfelt Creations Monkeying Around

Today is new release day for Heartfelt Creations and the design team is showcasing the Monkeying Around collection.  I have made an adorable shadowbox from the 6" x 6" Foldout Cards set.  First I added a background DP to the shadowbox, then using the front opening as a template, I traced around it and hand trimmed a front panel.  I stamped each element from the collection onto Cryogen Metallic paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  After coloring them with Copic markers I began to build my scene.  There are 3 fins in the bottom of the shadow box to which you can adhere your images.  I added a lot of palm fronds as well as the top of one of the coconut trees for ground cover.  Then it was just a matter of adding all the monkeys.  The stamped image in the front right does not have a matching die but it is quite simple to hand trim.  I added some flowers on the upper right, embossing with my stylus tool for some shape.  

Be sure to add a DP panel to the back to finish the project.

Very cute. I see lots of layers and that makes it more work, but worth the effort. Great job. Edna
