When I saw the Muppet Challenge over at The Friday Mashup, I thought "what fun!" My favorite has always been Fozzie Bear, although Elmo comes in a close second.
I cut him from Create a Critter. The cut was for a full bear (with a tiny body) so I cut the body off. The hat came from the same cart, and was originally a top hat on the caterpillar page. I scruffed up the edges of the head to make him look a little furry. I cut the hat down, wadded it up and then inked with Black Soot Distress Ink. The eyes were a punch that I covered with Glossy Accents. The mouth and tongue are hand cut and inked with Frayed Burlap. I added a pom pom nose and twine bowtie. The sentiment was printed on the bottom of the card and then I added the streamer paper behind Fozzie, who is popped up.
I've seen some rather wonderful things made from images that aren't what they started out as and was hoping that I could do the same thing. Sometimes the head and hands don't always see eye to eye. lol
