Saturday Challenge...Anything Goes!

 Hello, it's the first Saturday of the month...can you believe it's November already!!! this weeks challenge at Catch The Bug is Anything Goes

For my card today, I used My Little Sock Monkey-front from Bugaboo Stamps. I also used one of my favorite techniques to add the look of texture to the monkey, which you can see better in the photo below. First I coloured him with copics using E44, E43, E42 for the darker parts. E51 & E50 for the cream parts and R27 & R17 for the red. Then I got out my Linen background stamp and sprayed it with rubbing alcohol (I bought it in a spray bottle at the $ store), dab off the extra and stamp. If you try it, just remember to only colour in the parts you want the texture in, or the whole thing will be textured. 

I also used this weeks Freshly Made Sketch FMS211
