My old friend the Orang Utan

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all as well as you can be...hugs.

I would like to welcome new follower Marie-Louise, lovey to have you aboard...hugs.

Onto my card for today. This is a photograph I took at Twycross Zoo way back in 2010. I have used him on cards before but I thought it was time he saw the light of day again. I still have to smile when I see him and remember the day I took it. I was so fascinated with him, and I stood watching him for ages! He had such deep wisdom in his eyes and looked at us mere humans as though we were to be pitied!

Basecard is my usual white linencard from The Range, folded and cut to fit a 6x6 envelope.
Photograph pritned onto the same card, then cut with Die-namics round stitched circle die.
Sentiment stamped with Stamps and Smiles then cut with Die-namics fishtail die.
Foliage cut from a piece of scrap card with Memory Box die.
 
For a change, I decided to add my original photograph so here he is in all his glory. I had previously been watching him ambling around then he decided he wanted to be above us all, so up the tree he went :o)


This was him before he went climbing :o)

This is another stunning card Jackie. I never thought of printing onto the linen card. I use linen card all the time as I love the effect that it gives. I will have to try this now. This card is just fabulous and you are right they are such intelligent creatures and it shows in everything they do. Thank you for your kind welcome.

Brilliant! And with the leaf die-cut, he looks like he's sitting in a tree on your card! You'll have to be careful who you send this to though... someone with a sense of humour! LOL!
