Two Moos - Friends

I was checking out Godelieve's blog last month and she had these things called "Moos" on there. They were beautiful but I had to ask myself...what is a Moo??? Thankfully, she had also left a link to a side called Make a Moo or Two. I went there and found out that a moo is "a little card with the size of 2,8 x 7 cm or approximately 1,1 x 2,8 inches. Besides this fixed size it's what you make of it".
Now that sounded like a whole bunch of fun. I decided to follow Godelieve's approach and do this kind of collage type. I had the background left over from a previous card and I loved the brown and green. I stamped many different images in the same brown and green and then glued on some seed beads. Finally, I drew a border around the images as they felt like they were falling off the Moo.
I don't do "collage" very often but at this size, it was the perfect place to play around with it. So, what do you do with these cute little Moos you might ask. Well, Godelieve has the perfect solutions - you can add them to a card (just like an embellishment) or she also made a keychain out of some. As well, you could save them (kinda like ATCs or Inchies).
ETA: I see that the colors are washed out in the photo ... to see the great green in the background, you can click on the image to enlarge it.
Thanks for dropping in for the visit. I'd love to see the Moos you might choose to make!!
