Cheeky Monkey

Hey there!  Glad to "see" you.  Thank you for stopping by to visit!  Please consider following my blog.  There are a number of ways you can follow on the left side.  I use Feedly.  I like the layout and user friendliness of it.  The only problem is that I don't know if a blogger knows I am following them through Feedly or if you are following me.
I have Googled the question but I haven't found anything yet.  Do you know?
Anyway, onto my card.
I was trying something new.  I am not entirely sure if I truly like it.  I think it has interesting elements individually but I am not fully convinced yet.  :-)
In the picture above, I kept it dark so you can see the shadowing I did on the tree.  The tree is from an embossing folder called Leafy Tree from Darice.  I used chalk to bring out the details of the embossing.  Then I embossed Cheeky Sean from High Hopes (Dustin Pike) onto it and watercolored with Twinkling H2Os.
In the pic below, I took it with flash so you can see the embossing and the glaze I used on the teeth.  I tried to match the stamp with the branch of the tree.  I did ok on that part.
 Other card details:
Base: PTI Pinefeather
Other paper: SU Chocolate Chip
Feliz Cumpleanos Stamp: SU Felicidades Siempre

 The bird I made from Mod Podge Melts.  It's pretty easy.  I painted it with acrylic paints.  While it was just melted, I added a generic brad to it.  
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
High Hopes: Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday: Anything Goes with a Sentiment
Through the Craftroom Door: Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp: Anything Goes
The Crafter's Cafe: Anything Goes
