Shabby Chic Monkey

Happy Saturday everyone! Today starts a new challenge at Catch the Bug! This week we challenge you to create a Distressed/Shabby Chic project! For my creation I chose this adorable little Sock Monkey to work with! I think this image is sooo sweet!! It's colored with Copics and the sentiment is from Hero Arts! I struggle big time with this style of cards a little distressing...a little inking and I'm done! I don't want to push it! :) pop on over to Catch the Bug blog for more inspiration from the rest of the DT! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!

Hi, love the colour and how cute is the little monkey, he actually looks like the soft toy sock monkeys I make, would be a great design to go with mine, lol. He is so cute.
