I have been admiring the wondeful punched animals on one of my lovely dowline, Sarahs blog and thought I would have a go at my own. Thanks for the inspiration Sarah.
Now most of you know I have a bit of a thing for cupcakes, well I also have a thing for monkeys too!!!!!!! I love the cheeky little fellas and have got quite a few monkey stamps so I decided to have a go at at punched monkey!!!
AND HERE HE IS!!!!!
1 3/4 inch circle
1 3/8 inch circle
1 1/4 inch circle
1 inch circle
3/4 inch circle
1/2 inch circle
1/4 inch circle
And also the following other items, sponge daubers, chocolate chip card, creamy caramel card, inkpads of these colours, white gel pen, brown pen, dimensionals and adhesive OK you need to cut out the following in Chocolate Chip, 4 x Word Window, 1 x 1 3/4 circle, 1 x 1 3/8 circle, 2 x 3/4 inch circle. The following in Creamy Caramel 1 x Oval, 1 x 1 1/4 circle, 1 x 1 inch circle, 2 x i/2 inch circle. Then in white 2 x 1/2 inch and in black 2 x 1/4 inch. Phew that was a lot! OK ink all the edges of the Choc CHip card with Choc CHip ink and the edges of the Creamy Caramel card with Creamy Caramel ink. Layer the 1 inch circle over the 1 3/4 inch circle as above
Next layer the 1 1/4 circle over the 1 3/8 circle as above
Ok now layer these over each other as shown
Next add some dimensional to the back of the oval
And then adhere to the body and head as above
Next add the eyes, I used Tombow wet glue for these
Then add the 1/2 inch Creamy Caramel circles onto the 3/4 inch Choc Chip and glue to the back of the head.
My favourite part now, add the limbs using the Word Window punch outs, I added one arm higher than the other to look like this arm is hanging onto the tree branches.
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial, I think I have got the punching bug and will try and make more!!!!
I am happy for you to use my design to make your own monkeys but please could you put a link on your blog to mine to give credit, that would be much appreciated.
