Jester leather carving practice

Here is a something a bit different (needed a break from flowers....). It was done as a leather carving practice piece using tattoo flash from the web and still needs a few light adjustments around the eyes. Haven't decided on or if i will color it. Comments welcome.

Leather Checkbook Cover

Here is my latest leather work, its a checkbook cover with bright yellow daffodils and black lacing on the outside, the inside is a dark brown with two pockets for your checks and register. This was my first no kit project( i cut out all the parts) as well as my first with color. The daffodils have more use of a modeling tool than any thing else i have done so far. I'm starting to get the hang of the lacing around the edge, the corners look much better, still not perfect. This doesn't have a home so, it's available if anyone is interested.
