Roar with Pride

Morning my crafting friends, hope you are having an enjoyable weekend, there are plenty of hugs going round to those who need them right now.

I decided to have a play yesterday and do a sort of CAS card, one layer. I have a few stamps I bought a while back that I have not used yet, this being one of them, and I thought they would do as a male card.

I got my card base ready and cut to size then measured a piece of White card to the size I wanted.

Using distress inks I started blending them together to form the background then stamped the grasses from John Lockwood's Daffodil  Elements stamps, these are so handy! Next I inked up my Lion stamp with my versamark ink pad and heat embossed it with Black embossing powder.

I got my Aquatints water colours and mixed the Orange and Browns together until I got a colour I was happy with and painted him in as seen. 

I stamped my sentiment at the bottom of the base card, attached my image with foam tape and there you have the finished card.

Items Used:

White card
Printable Heaven Leather card Cream
Tim Holtz Distress Inks Bundled Sage, Brushed Cordroy, Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers & Forest Moss
Spectrum Noir Aquatints 33, 35, 39 & 42
