Sock Monkey in the Sun

It's Color Dare Day and Sock Monkey has joined in on the fun! Riley has Dared us to use
So Saffron
Concord Crush
Neutral of your choice

I stuck with white as my neutral just because of the ice cream. I used a blender pen grabbing ink from the lid of the ink pad to colour in the ice cream treats. I think it's interesting how sometimes it ended up drying pinkish....everything started out with Concord though.
And yes, I know it's a bit ridiculous for Sock Monkey to be wearing a tie with his shades in the sun...but I just HAD to give him a striped tie - my husband wears ties everyday to school. His students tell him they don't recognize him on the street if he doesn't have a tie. I used watercolour paper for Sock Monkey in hopes of creating some sort of effect, but not much happened; except that the tips of this hands and feet are a paler Saffron.

So take the Dare! It will be fun to see what people come up with because these colours lend themselves to a number of images. When your creation is finished be sure to post it over on the Color Dare Blog because you may get selected as a Featured Stamper. When posting to public galleries, please remember to label your project as CD102.

And finally, don't forget to visit the other members of the Design Team to see what wonderful creations they have come up with this week. Here are their links:
