I have all these neat idea for monkey cards, and this is another one.
I used weathered look wallpaper for the card cover front, the one strip looks similar to a tree, so WALLA!!!! instant tree. (I have seen background paper of the same design in craft store.) I used my crimper to crimp wasabi green, large oval punch is the leaves, took scissors and notched out some pieces to give it a leaf look (saw someone do that on SCS........sorry don't know who. This is not my original idea, just borrowed her inspiration) I have the leaves layered on the tree with dimensionals. The bananas are done in so saffron, then cut out and used black pen for detailing on bananas. The monkeys are stamped in close to cocoa, then cut out and attached with glue dots.
I hope you like the card I shared. Thanks for looking.
