We are going to have lots of fun this week playing with the Little Monkey Bundle!  These cute little guys just make me smile.

Today, I'm introducing you to Crayola.  She said she wasn't crazy about her name, but she would feel much more accepting of it if I gave her lots of bananas.  So that's what I did.

What would a Monkey Stamp Set be if it didn't include bananas?  So Crayola has a banana in her hand and is surrounded by many more.

She looks very contented, doesn't she?  Either that, or she's flirting and batting her eyes at us.  Or she could be napping and dreaming of bananas.  I hope it isn't the latter as I would hate for her to fall off from her tree limb!

The Old Olive Polka Dot panel to Crayola's right (your left) was made using the Crayon Resist Technique.  If you are unfamiliar with this technique you can watch this Learning with Friends video that shows you how to do the Crayon Resist Technique.

All you need for this technique is a white crayon, an embossing folder, colored ink and some cardstock.  You can use a blending brush, sponge dauber, or water painter to apply your ink.  Each will give you a little different result, so have some fun, experiment and play with the technique.

Crayola was made with Copper Clay and Petal Pink cardstock.  Her bananas were colored with Lemon Lolly and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Markers and her tree limb was colored with Copper Clay and Old Olive.

To be sure that Crayola didn't run out of bananas (she really likes her bananas) there are also some stored for her on the inside of her card.

She also told me that I needed to make you a tutorial so you would know how to make her card.  If you would like Crayola's tutorial you can use this link to download a copy.  The Technique Instructions are included in the tutorial and it also has a link to the Crayon Resist Technique video.

A list of products used on Crayola's card are also below.

Crayola asked me to tell you that she would really like you to come back on Wednesday and meet some of her friends, so we hope you will come back for another visit.
