Video : Cards 4 Men – Creating a Framed Monkey!

Back with another image card in my Cards4Men series and today it was time to colour the monkey.  For some reason I felt that ‘gold’ was needed and I’ve had the urge to create my own gold frame for a while now and today was the day, so I decided to share that with you in my video.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.



Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Awesome masculine card, Therese! I love the effect of the embossed frame and your coloring is amazing!

  2. Super cute masculine card Therese ! I love the face of this monkey “I keep an eye on you, so be good !”, I’m not sure his yoga is very effective ! ;-)) Love the idea of the levitating frame !
    Very beautiful coloring and this grass seems so real ! Thanks for sharing with a video !

  3. Love how you have done this. I have been feeling just the same you know, wanting to make my own frame but how to glam it up. Now I know, never thought to use the embossing folder. Time to try it. I love these characters from this stamp set, they are so ugly they are cute lol.

  4. I love how you centered your monkey with your gorgeous frame! I think he likes it too because with the pattern that shows up he’s looking at it as if, “hmm…are those golden bananas I see?”

  5. Love this card and that you used another image from that cute stamp set! I wonder if the gold Wink of Stella or the metallic gold Wink of Luna markers might provide more sparkle.
