Aloha Hawaii - Cheery Lynn Designs October 2015 New Release

Hi fellow bloggers, today Cheery Lynn Designs launch their exciting new October release of dies which is an eclectic mix of Travel designs, words, memory books and lacey frames. Please check out what my fellow Teamies have been up to with the new dies HERE and you can view the full range HERE.

For my card I decided to use a bright floral paper and colours to compliment these fun travel dies. My Aloha Hawaii was layered 3 times for a 3D shadow effect layering my flower in the centre.

My palm tree was shaded with Copics, off-setting another layer of branches behind the top layer for a 3D look.

Before I die cut my Monkey I crumpled a square of Kraft cardstock, next I unraveled the Cardstock and added ink over it and sprayed with a little water, re crumpling and drying with my heat-gun. This gave my paper great texture to look like the Monkeys fur. I added in my letters and eyes which had been colours with Copics.

I will be back on Saturday showcasing some more of the new dies from this release.
