Monkeys Dig Sushi

They're vegetarians, right? Then the Kappa rolls, the bond rolls (no salmon) and surely the yummy sorbets would appeal to a sock monkey right?

I hope so.

I did this one for an extra tough Kristina Werner Color Challenge. I love each of these colors individually, but when I put them together, it was hard to come up with something.

Until my sister-in-law emailed me and said she was up for Uchi. Which is FULL of very vanilla, certainly celery, soft sky and pumpkin pie!!!! Purrfect.

I added only black.

I made the sushi with my large oval punch - I trimmed both the black and white pieces by hand - the white AFTER I stuck it to the black. Then I made circles with my pumpkin pie marker, and added crystal effects and iridescent ice embossing powder.

I hand cut the chopsticks out of Very Vanilla, and made up some completely not japanese characters on the handles.

I hand cut the celery "chives", and the orange sushi tray.

Great challenge!!!
