I'm bananas for you

I colored up this adorable monkey from C.C. Designs Monkey set  with My Favorite Things Extreme black ink and colored it with my Spectrum Noir and Illustrator markers. Cut it out.
Stamped the foliage from Marianne Design Folia set with Memento ink and cut it out.

Then I masked off the area on the card base and applied Memento inks with a finger dauber to crate my bokeh leafy canopy background. On top I've applied Lawn Fawn Yeti white ink.
I've them stamped the sentiment with Versafine Clair Nocturn ink, but I think I  have applied too  much ink (moist inkpad too). So not 100% happy with the fatty fonts in the sentiment, but hey it's a no do over policy here ;-) might pop a banner on top if I
still hate it tomorrow.

Added foamtape to the images and adhered it on top.

I thought the Monkey is perfect for a boy or guy Valentine's card, so I'm entering it into the Male Room Challenge: Nature.

And also the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge:  Love is in the air.

And the Wednesday Challenge for Simon Says Stamp is: have a heart.
