CAS Monkey ~

Hi iCopic friends!  It's Alyssa finally checking in here on Friday morning, well morning for me at least!  Sorry I'm so late!  I had planned to work on a special something for you all yesterday and ended up having to work and do all the family things in the evening.  I was plumb tuckered out and needed to be fresh to make some eye candy for today!
I chose to use this darling little monkey from the CC Designs Itzie Inkies set Flower Power.  He's only about 2" tall, so I scaled the card size down to 3 1/2" by 5" - an unusual size but a fun one!  I'm really loving the look of CAS or Clean And Simple cards lately that allow the focus to remain on the colored image. 
I used the new Copic Sketch colors RV55, RV63 and RV66 to shade the flower.  For the grass, I used the same shadowing method that I use for the C series of grays.  I started with G07 close to and under the monkey's body, blended it out with YG09 and blended further withYG06.  If I'd had more room in the image, I would have used some quick strokes to make blades of grass so the ground line wasn't flat.  It's all about experimentation! 
iCopic is now carrying Baker's Twine too!  There are 11 different colors of this beautiful twine.  I used some Lemon twine to wrap the card and threaded it through a couple of buttons.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's Just My Type clear set - I just love that font!  Sweet and simple!  Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope you have a super crafty weekend!!  :o) lyss

It's not fair that you can do CAS perfectly in addition to coloring most awesomely and making those gorgeous layered cards. Hmph.

It is a cutie- love the colors you used sweetie

Completely adorable!! Love the stamp and I agree CAS does help one to focus on the gorgeous image - with gorgeous coloring!
