ZooBalloo Throwback Challenge

Hi, everyone.  Hope you all had a great weekend.  I'm sharing my entry for My Creative Time's throwback challenge this week.  The challenge was to use Zooballoo in an original design.  I decided to make a shaker gift card tag (not sure if you can see the beads in the shaker part in the photo).  I used the monkey on page 94 of the handbook cut at 2 1/2".  I cut 2 layers one of which is glued directly to the monkey with Glossy Accents on the border of the tummy.  On the second layer I added a clear transparency sheet and cut to size.  After I allowed the Glossy Affects to dry I added some MS Microbeads in brownstone and then another layer of Glossy Accents to adhere the layer with the transparency to the monkey.  I cut the vine and layer from page 128 of the handbook at 1".  I inserted the vine throw the monkey tail to give the effect of swinging.  I used the largest circle from the Nestabilities standard circles to make the base.

Thanks for stopping by.   Clarice
