Guilty Gorilla by Paper Makeup Stamps


Ok, when I first saw this gorilla at Paper Makeup Stamps I knew I had to have him!! I mean look at those sad,sad eyes and that pouty lip! Who wouldn't love him?? When I saw the challenge this week at the Paper Makeup blog I knew that I was going to use him. I had fun creating this card. I wanted the card to be a little dark because of how sad my gorilla is. I pulled out my cuttlebug and some Coredinations cardstock and embossed and sanded away. I colored my gorilla with prismacolor pencils (I am anxiously awaiting the FEDEX man tomorrow!! Thanks Katie for all the help!!) Of course a project rarely seems finished without some glimmer mist, so not only is a portion of the middle matting misted, but my whole gorilla was misted!! The sentiment is from the same stamp set! I even pulled out my sewing machine, which is never far away, and sewed around the edges. When I finish a project I always ask my guys what they think, and this guy got three thumbs up!
