K is for Karma

I looked online at lots of information related to karma, but what I kept coming back to was a song by Boy George and the Culture Club called Karma Chameleon.  To me, this was a song as famous as Beatles songs, but apparently, after mentioning it to a couple people, I realized that it wasn't quite up there on everyone else's playlist.  (One of my favorite songs, ever, and yes, I'm willing to admit it.)  Here's a link to a video of Culture Club performing Karma Chameleon.  For the picture above, I found this chameleon online, and gave him a knitted cap to wear.  You can't really tell, but using my Photoshop skills, I also gave him a bit of a smile.  He had been looking rather grim. 

Here's my zentangled K.  I did most, if not all (can't remember...) of these zentangled letters in black and white, but this one got a heart of color, to pick up the colors in the song.  Here are the lyrics I used on my page: 
Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon,
you come and go, you come and go.
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dreams,
red gold and green, red gold and green.

This stamp was on a package I received from New Zealand.  I scanned it and added it to my page, again, because of the colors.

And here's the page spread.

My favorite so far! Love the cap on the chameleon and the color pop of the heart!

Thanks, Vicki! I have the most fun when I'm doing something silly.
