One in a Chameleon

I just couldn't resist this super fun stamp set from Your Next Stamp called 'One in a Chameleon' - I loved the super cute images and all the fun sentiments.
I used the current sketch and color challenge #85 over on the YNS blog to inspire this card. I love how it has turned out!

I found this paper from Lily Bee Design in my stash and thought it worked perfectly for part of the color combo in the challenge.
And then I thought - chameleon's blend into the background, so why not stamp it directly onto the background.
I did, however, need its eyes to pop out of the patterns too. I stamped the image again on plain white cardstock and fussy cut out the eyes. I glued them over the top of the patterned paper eyes and added some glossy accents to really make them pop (unfortunately you don't quite get the effect in the photo as you do in real life).
I needed to 'ground' the image so used some light grey zig clean color brush marker to give him something to be standing on.
I picked another color from the color combo for the 'envelope' style topping to the card. I stamped one of the sentiments from the set using some black versafine ink.
I also stamped one of the flowers from the set onto matching paper, added some wink of stella and then fussy cut it out. I popped this up on some foam tape over some grey and white bakers twine.

I'm super happy with how this fun card turned out!
