Caring Lion

Hi there.  I have a sweet little card to share and I ain’t lion. 😂   Ok, ok, I hear the groaning and grumbling, but I had to do it. 😂  And now onto my card.



Stamped the lion with Intense Black ink and coloured with Copics.  Masked him and the ground area, then blended Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio distress inks for the background.  Next die cut with a Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle.  To add dimension and still keep it CAS, used the matching die to die cut him along with three more from scraps to stack them.



Adhered the stitched panel to a white top folding card base, stamped big with Deep Iris ink, then inlaid the stacked diecut lion back.  Next die cut hugs from white cardstock and white fun foam to stack them for dimension again.  Ombré blended Wilted Violet distress ink with a mini blending tool.



A white gel pen was used to give the heart highlights.  To finish, added clear shimmer to the heart and hugs sentiment and a few Crystal clear sequins.
