Walk on the Wild Side!

Today I've made this card for a man that likes to walk on the wild side!

I stamped the lion, then masked him so I could sponge the grass and stamp the long grasses around him using my markers. I then fussy cut the grass into a triangle for the foreground of the card. Next, I repeatedly stamped a tree (coloured with my markers) for the bushes and again fussy cut it into a triangular shape for the middle ground. Lastly, hiding behind the bushes I stamped a nosey giraffe, and the sentiment. The pieces were then put in their place with the lion and foreground raised on 3D pads.

I am entering it in these challenges :

The sketch is from Stampin' Royalty,
