Teddy Bo goes surfing

Today's card is the result of a bit of unexpected spare time, was supposed to have been off to a good start with the next 15 monkeys but I'm still waiting for the socks to be delivered. Should have arrived on Friday but have been delayed until tomorrow. However I've had time to make a couple of cards, do some art jounalling and get prepared for a children's Mother's Day craft session at the library on Sunday. 

Meanwhile the first three monkeys have been off having adventures in and around Edinburgh preparing for their big debut at the weekend. The photographer has been following them around and has got some excellent shots of their mischief - more later!!

Anyway here is Teddy Bo having an adventure of his own, The image was printed onto card and coloured with Promarkers then I used some distress inks with some spritzed Tattered Angels to give a misty, watery effect. Basic Grey papers and a fancy folding technique - not as easy as it looked in the demo!! - and all finished off with a sentiment from Rubber Stampede.
