Crocodile Smiles

You must have heard the saying "never smile at a crocodile",  well this one likes to make you smile.  It's winter here, hence the scarf.

Our challenge at the Crafters Café this time is USE WOOL, join in the fun here:

Thanks to our sponsor Dr Digi who provided the fun image :

Image: Doctor Digi
Sentiment stamp: Heidi Swapp
Star stamp: Grace Taylor
Embossing: Zing - Lime
Also: White gel pen, Copics, wool scraps, sequins, 3D Kindyglitz gem clear

The croc is paper pieced with dotty paper, and I knitted the scarf with a scrap of wool.  Image partly coloured with Copics, highlighted with white gel pen.  The teeth coated with 3D Kindyglitz gem clear, the sentiment stamped and heat embossed. Partly cut around his hand so it could wrap over the scarf and fixed it with 3D foam.  The white card is punched all around to look like it's been chomped with those sharp teeth, stars stamped and sequins applied ( I think they look like scales).
