monkey cut outThis is something that I made for my husband for our anniversary. I have a couple of far more professional looking ones that I got back in the UK and I thought that I might have a go at making my own.

I still need a bit more practise to get nice clean lines on the more detailed bits – I don’t think I would make for a very good surgeon.

I really like the contrast in texture that you get from using fabric scraps as the backing print though.

I made another one (different shape & phrase but same fabric and board combination) for some of my best friends for their wedding but I forgot to get a picture of it which is a shame because I think it looks a better than this one. You’ll just have to take my word for it…
