Just Another Day.....

I received some new stamps the other day all the way from the US. They are acrylic stamps and I had a bit of a job finding the right ink to use on them, in the end I used black adirondak . I usually use Stazon but have seen that it can damage acrylic stamps. I used the adirondak because it was waterproof and I wanted to colour the image in and use zest it to blend.
All the stamps are little individual stamps so you can dress your monkey up how you want to. I think on this card I used about 11 tiny individual stamps!! I still have a lot more that I didn't use yet. Lots of masking going on here too. The sentiment is also part of the set.

Stamps:- Clear Dollar Stamps, Monkey Madness & Monkey Accessories
Paper & Card:- SU simply scrappin, Home Again.
