Layin' Rubber Ink Design Clique #23

This week we are all on time with our Design Clique submissions! YAY!!

We're using CC Designs Lucky Duck - monkey in the bathtub image.

The first one up is Tara:
Next is Alysabeth:

I think Alysabeth and I were drinking the same Koolaid this week because we choose similiar colour schemes!
Here's mine:

I was the last one to finish this week because I was having "issues".
I needed to come up with a greeting for this card and all I could think of was "Time to wash the monkey?" Seriously it was stuck in my head. I finally went to the CC Design website and chose one of the greetings from this set. Unfortunately I don't have the stamp set (the hostess sends out the images for the month to all the participants) so I just printed the greeting using MS WORD.
AND then I couldn't find a ribbon I liked to go with this October Afternoon Walk in the Park patterned paper
(it's actually the back side of it).
So I took out my handy dandy little COPIC reference book and found a colour that matched the paper and then I coloured the blue dots on this ribbon to better match my paper.
The coloured dots are to the right in the photo below and as you can see in my card above it matches very nicely
(better in real life).

So let this be a lesson to you if you've got COPIC markers you can easily make your ribbon match your cardstock just be colouring it!

COPICS USED: BG13, BG11, W), E31, E33, E35, ROO
