Snake in the Grass!

alota Rubber Stamps has recently released some cute animal stamps ........ mine arrived in the mail today so of course it is no big surprise that when the sketch challenge was posted on SCS I decided to use one of these stamps to create my card. I decided upon the snake as I felt it would be about the right size to fit in the centre diamond shape of the card.

So many people these days are coloring their animals blue ..... up until now this has been pretty hard for me to do ...... but look I did it!!!!!!!!! I also found this blue background paper in my stash that also had circles on it which I thought would work ok with the circles on the snake!

Recipe:
Stamps: Snake - alota Rubber Stamps
Paper: Certainly Celery & Barely Banana - SU; Aqua; White; Black; Atomic Turquoise DP - Sandylion
Other: Black Ink; Blue Brads; Foam Tape

Wow, that snake sure does pop, love the blue that you colored him and your shading of the leaves is fantastic.
