Wocka Wocka

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 have a tendency to take challenges like this a little too literally.  The actual challenge was to use the colors of your favorite Muppet character.  I couldn't think of anything to do with these colors so I just made Fozzie himself.  I must say after seeing what some of the other bloggers entered, I hesitated to even enter this but I spent some time on it so here goes.

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

    (And I do apologize for the double comment on the post above. My son came to offer me ju-jubes and I got totally distracted by the opportunity for sugar!!)

  6. I think you did a fantastic job! I usually take things too litterally also, so I relate to what you are saying! However, I am glad you went the route you did and made this great Fozzie card!

    Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Friday Mashup!

  7. Love it! What a fun (so what if it's literal) take on the challenge! Thanks for joining us at The Friday Mashup this week!
