Year of the Monkey

Hi there friends,
One more sleep and it'll be the weekend! Yay *Ü*
Today, I have a card to share that I created for a teacher of Chinese in my department for Chinese New Year.
Here it is:
 This stamp is called Lion Dancers (Sister Stamps) and the banner is Xin Chun Kuai Le (SeeSaw graphics). I masked the images & ink blended the background with Distress Inks in Candied Apple, Fossilized Amber, and Black Soot. Then I removed the masks & colored the images with Copics.

Here's a closer peek:
I know it's hard to see, but everywhere there's white, I covered it with the Clear Wink of Stella brush so it's sparkly! *Ü* And I added a wiggle eye for fun! There are little dots of gold all over the background, which is hard to see too :(  I've had this stamp for a while & finally got around to inking it up- I think it's adorable! *Ü*

Thanks so much for peeking today!
