Images from Indonesia

CAS Colours and Sketches have a sketch for your challenge today, and it's a good one!

Wondering about the title? A very long time ago, BC (before children) I was lucky enough to have an extended stay in Jakarta, where my husband was working.  We lived in a small house in a garden filled with exotic flowers and, in the evening, these little green gekos would come out and cool down on the white walls. Just like these ones..

You will notice that I forgot to add the corner element to the main panel, so check out below. My little geko has some bling to represent his sparkly scales and he comes from a set called Paisley Pets, stamped using my markers so that I could add touches of colour to his, mostly, green body. The leaf is a stick on. With or without? What do you think?


  1. Oh I adore this cute little guy! I have the stamp and it's one of my favourite - I really like the sparkle on the main image and the felt leaf too!

    I lived in Malaysia when I was 9 years old, and I used to love watching the geckos running up and down the walls!

  2. This is a great card Louise, and I love your inspiration behind it!

    PS...I prefer no leaf ;)

  3. That is a neat card with or without the added embellishment


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
