Strangely Ooman

Hello.  Welcome.  After moving about a ton of soil out of my chicken garden this morning I decided it was time to try and join a few more cards to some of the World Card Making Day challenges that are open still.  I love World Card making Day Week!!!!  Here's a funny little chap amid monotone leaves.

The Lost Coast Designs Leaves Background is a current favourite and adds lovely texture.  I stamped the leaves using black archival, which I must remember to re-ink!!  I was going to stamp Carmen's Veranda Monkey Face on white card and fussy cut but decided to just stamp him straight on the leaves and emboss with black powder.  Love the leaf texture on his face!!  I used white and blue gel pens on his eyes, a Sizzix deckle die to cut the panel and mounted it on a black base card.  Pleasingly quirky.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
