SpringCardCamp - day 9 cloudgazing

I have just joined the online SpringCardCamp at day 9, so have a bit of catching up to do.  However I decided to start at today's which is cloudgazing... thinking of ways to use our materials to get different results than the original intended use.

I struggled to find a stamp I could use then when I opened up the box with this set in,  it leapt out at me,  the wave/moustache!  The stamp is a holiday island stamp from BoBunny.

I  used the wave for a moustache and the palm trees for hair and eyebrows.  To start with I diecut an oval for the face and sponged it with Distress Inks in 3 colours.  I made the nose and ears using the tiny fish stamp, and the sun in both sizes as the eyes, and turned the outside circles into glasses.  I then drew a line to define and fussy-cut around the edge.  The eyes and moustache are coloured with Copics, the shirt and bow tie free-cut.  I will put a sentiment on when I know who the card is for.

Oval die: Spellbinders
Square die: unbranded
Stamps: Bo Bunny
Distress Inks, Copics
Versafine sepia, black
Nuvo crystal drops, white pen, black pen
