stamping: monkey around with Lawn Fawn

Today I’m just monkeying around with my stamping – won’t you join me?

Sometimes it really is just fun to monkey around – and for this project I used a new Ellen Hutson exclusive set. I love the idea behind “united we flourish” and small businesses coming together- and Lawn Fawn and Ellen are two of the best I know (affiliate links used). You can find out more and check out this set on the website here.

I filmed a YouTube video to share the process of stamping + creating this fun gift tag.

My favorite is the background. The colors didn’t turn out as I expected – but I love them all the same.

Using stencils as I did here is always fun – I love ink blending! The aqua hues didn’t turn out as I expected – however in person as I look at this project I can see the subtle blue tones. That’s why I like to create without rules – you never know what you’ll come up with or like! This stencil I used (I believe) is an old Hero Arts one – but no worries if you want a similar one. There are sooo many stencil companies out there now you can easily find some!

Color medium wise I used clean color pens to work on my stamped images. So far none of mine have run out and I’m pleased overall with how they work for the coloring I do. That said – any color medium you like can work here!

Thanks bunches for tuning in – I’m going to gift my monkey stamp set + dies, as well as a few other surprises to one of you! Just leave a comment on this post and the winner will be announced in the final Camp Scrap 2017 roundup post next week. Good luck – and happy stamping!
