Monochrome Monkey

      I'm finally finished with my card for today.  I used a Meljens designs "monkey" for my stamp today. I decided to make it a Mans, Monochrome Monkey with Browns as my color.  I haven't seen many of these, so i thought that it may be something different. I try to make Meljens a definite weekly challenge.
     I used paper from a CVS stack that i bought years ago, and old EK success punch to make my washers, Ribbon from Offray, twine that i had in my stash and screw eyelets that i've had forever and never used. I used my word window punch and my label punch from Stampin'up for the sentiments.

Tip:After putting beads on your pen when making beaded pens, use Crystal Lacquer over the beads to seal them on.  This way you won't lose as many beads from wear and use of your pen.
