Denise, @ “Whimsy” sent me the newly released animals and this adorable lion is one of them. He has been water colored then detailed with colored pencil. That is my tip for creating that wild orange mane. I popped him in a couple of places to give him a 3D look. The papers are “Basic Grey” and “Papertrey”. I found this really cute leopard ribbon that I think works well with this guy. The outside sentiment says “You’re Grrrrreat!” and the inside says “And I’m Not Lion!”
I am entering this card in two different challenges. The first is "Cuttlebug Challenge" where they want you to do a card with your favorite movie as the inspiration. While “Twilight” is my "IT" move right now, my life long favorite movie is ‘The Wizard of OZ” This lion reminds me of a modern version of The Cowardly Lion. I also used my Cuttlebug and "Dots and Spots" embossing folder to emboss the circles and dots on the frames for the lion and the sentiments. The second challenge is over at “Creative Card Corner” where they are asking that we use a “geometric pattern”. This card has circles everywhere!
I truly appreciate you all dropping by! If you have a second or two, I would love it if you would leave a comment. They make my day! Hugs!
