Wild Things

"Five little monkeys jumping on the bed!" I made this card using the monkey in Wild Things from The Greeting Farm. The challenge is to create a shaker card and I thought this would be a cute theme. For the picture, I assembled the card on a flat surface which was already setup for a photo. Then after placing the top on I was able to take a few shots before I shook it - because of course, I had to shake it!

Here are the details on the five little monkeys. I was experimenting with the Copic marker's Earth tone color group and comparing the various shades of skin colors. I also altered the tales on the monkeys so I could cut them out easier.

Did you know? Ramsey theory, named after Frank P. Ramsey, is a branch of mathematics that studies the conditions under which order must appear. Problems in Ramsey theory typically ask a question of the form: "how many elements of some structure must there be to guarantee that a particular property will hold?"
