Great card Witchy!

Don't know what got into me tonight, but instead of sleeping I was playing!  This is what I ended up with

I just found the gallery and started from page one reading and taking notes so I could mention specifically the cards I liked best -- BUT I love them all!  I just got home from the post office and mailing out my cards and now they all seem so inadequate.

But on a happier note, I came to find a card from Patti in my mail!  She did this card while at work with only supplies available there--can you believe it?  I think it's totally awesome, I love it!  Thanks, Patti.

Some great cards already!

Here is mine.  Totally not something I usually do but.....
The background paper is a light pink that doesn't seem to show up to well here.  And the last step was to spray glitter, but that's not showing up either!

As I understand it Zetti is an art movement where you take any "normal" image, generally of people or animals, and make them look more like a fantasy creature. This is generally done by either changing their heads with a different species, or just making it oversized for the body. Most Zetti, not all, have a pair of wings also. Most of the adjustments made to Zetti figures are done via collage using simple papers and newspaper for the hats, wings, and other appendages you feel the need to add to convert your figure to the zetti fantasy world. Many zetti creations are just simple pictures of people with paper wings and crowns or cone hats to make them look a little zany or offbeat.
Hope this helps.

OK, I didn't use wings or hats, but there are lots of layers decoupaged on this, the head, the cuffs the boots and trellis.  There is even a 'postage' type stamp. It doesn't look like the zetti images I've seen, but I was trying to make it my own and not copy.

Before I officially join the zetti swap, will stuff like this work?

It's kind of funny because I've been working on these (my cat and dog) just haven't found the extra 'stuff' I want to put on them yet!

OK, this one will help with OY's latest scavenger hunt. 

I did this a few years ago and then forgot about it until now.
Make your own stamps:
Kid's foam/Fun foam (these are made from the 1/4 inch but I think any thickness will do)

Heat the fun foam for a few minutes with a heat tool, then immediately impress whatever you want to make a stamp of into the hot foam.  When the foam cools remove your item and you have a stamp.

I used an asian coin and a little clay mask to make these stamps:

The coin:

The stamps:

Oh wow, I'm behind on reading and posting!  I'll just say Great Job EVERYONE! 
Have2Craft, love your card in particular, it made me laugh!

And I'm a day late but here's my Thursday card.  (it really looks a lot better in person.  I just didn't photo well.)
Don't bite the hand that feeds you.

OK, I'm not sure if this was cheating, if it was just delete this post.  I had to do this, 'Mr. Tire' advertisement came in the mail today it had all the pieces I used, but the TM is only 1/2 a tire so I scanned it and made it a whole tire and made baby's face a little smaller to fit.
