Jeanne challenged us to use wood in our design which was perfect for doing up this barrel of monkeys for my son's birthday. I had seen some grey tones in the gallery and really like the weathered effect so I chose that. I restamped my barrel on sahara sand and ran some copics over it, then embossed with a twiggy ef and sponged over that with mushroom and grey, cut it out and pieced in the wooden parts.

Oh my goodness, I'm in love with this fab creation!! You pulled off every detail to perfection! Your colouring is fantastic, especially the grass, and the die-cut leaves are arranged beautifully! This is so fun!
