Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge #28! Monkey!

Another tag for Tim Holtz's Challenge #28! This challenge is the Alcohol Ink Ombre technique, once again a new technique for me! Check out Tim’s tutorial on page 57 of  A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol.3 to see the technique demonstrated.  If you don’t have the book, you can order one directly from Tim, who will be glad to autograph it for you. 

I made several tags for this challenge (it was so much fun!) and decided to enter a 2nd tag. This one contains a currently popular quote. ;)
For this tag I used Adirondack Ink Ginger, Caramel and Latte for the Ombre technique. I then added the quote from Tim Holtz's Life Quotes stamp set. (I know a lot of monkeys... Just sayin'.) The ombre rope is made using a neat embellishment I found called Sticky Stitches. It's made by Colorbok - Remember When and this is from the Primary Colors set. I had the cute monkeys and bananas in my stash. These were made by Creative Imaginations - Debbie Mumm. I popped on a butterfly, a feather and some flowers from my stash to finish it off. I hope you enjoy it. :)

And, as always, a “Curiosity Crew’s Choice” winner will receive an awesome assortment of Tim’s products, courtesy of Tim himself and Mario Rossi, his Logistic Director.

Hello again, Leigh Ann. You have chosen one of my favorite new stamp sentiments for this tag! I like your design and how you've added the multicolored cording from the bottom to the top of the tag. Thanks for sharing with us at CC3C. <3 Candy
