I made a little pet monkey inspiration to start us off and also continue our 31 Days of Halloween weirdness.  Your pet makes don't have to be spooky or weird, but you know we do love that here at the Portal LOL!!
I used Carmen's Veranda Monkey Face and Flying Monkey Background Lost Coast Designs Pondscum Background, Magic, and Window stamps.

I stamped the Pondscum Background on pale blue card with Sky Blue archival ink.
I stamped  Monkey Face and part of the Flying Monkey Background with black archival and masked off a semi circle.
I blended various yellow distress inks into the masked area to make the moon and used a black pen to make the big detailed flying monkey a silhouette.
I used gel pens for the monkey's eyes.  I stamped the Magic and Window with grey archival ink and gave the background a weak purple distress ink wash.

Now it's your turn.  Are you up for the challenge?  We can't wait to see your projects!  
Submit your entries in the linky party below by 5 to midnight PST on the 31st and don't forget to follow us so you don't miss anything!  The team is posting everyday this month so check back and join the fun.

Happy Stamping!

Hello again! I just realized I neglected to include your challenge badge in my blog posts so I have rectified that. So sorry for my error; I have added the badge on each entry and will do so on future entries. Love this challenge - it's right up my alley!

I've just hopped over from the Cat Lovers Hop. Thanks for sponsoring! My Mom's favorite movies was the Wizard of Oz and my husband was very afraid of the flying monkeys as a child. Great design!

Those monkeys from the Wizard of Oz always made me shiver with fear..and yes, still do!
