Edwin the Lion Keeper


Hope you're all having a happy, sunny Sunday!!!

Today I have a card for two challenges
- Just Magnolia's Monthly Tutorial Challenge which is Distressing and A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge where the theme is summer.

So, here's what I made:

As I love taking my boys to the zoo during the school summer holidays, I decided to make a zoo inspired card for the summer theme.

I used two Magnolia stamps - "Edwin as Animal Keeper" and "Lion".
I coloured them using my Copics and also used some dark gold glitter glue on the lion's mane & tail and my silver Sakura metallic pen for Edwin's belt buckle and key.

I used some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade to distress around the lion. I used some black Co-ordinations card and distressed the edge to reveal an orange core.

I also had some fibres in my stash, which I've used to the left of the lion, I think they look quite effective.

The papers are from Joanna Sheen's Jane Netley Mayhew Collection CD ROM.

I'm also linking this card to the Charmed Delectable Stamps Blog where they have a set of 72 Copic Pens up for grabs - go check it out!!

Thanks for dropping by. Hope you like it.
