Lion in the Grass!

My card today has a masculine feel to it

The Lion was stamped and masked with a Post it so that extra grasses could be stamped to the rear and sides of him. I then used my Aqua Painter to colour the background and lions body.The sassy sentiment adds a bit of fun ( I hope!)

I'm entering my card into 3 challenges

Clean and Simple with this sketch.

Fab Friday have these colours,

and Make My Monday want

"One for the Boys!"

Card = Whisper White, Pistachio Pudding and White base FMS
Stamps = Zoo Review, Wetlands and Sassy Salutations
Inks = Black Archival, Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar, and Sahara Sand
Tools = Big Shot, Framelets, Aqua Painter, and Post It
Extras = 3D Pads

During half term I did some crafting with my niece and least they had their mojo's and this is what they came up with

They designed their own Mother's Day cards, even decorating the insides

Next time I'll show you the present they made

Thanks for dropping by
