Doodle Pantry Lion

 

Hello everyone.  I wanted to share my latest Doodle Pantry creation with you.  This image is from the Lion & Lamb collection.  I am obviously just using the lion on my project.  I am a huge animal lover and always have been.  In fact, I have had a crush on Jungle Jack Hannah since I was a teenager.  When I saw this image, I knew it would be one of my favorites. 

I colored my lion with Copic markers and tried to channel my inner Mufasa as I colored.  This took me quite a while to get the way I wanted it.  I then cut him out and popped him up on SU dimensionals.  I don't think you can see the 3D in the photo very well.  I wanted to go rustic so I distressed all the papers with my Tim Holtz distress tool and added some tea distress ink to all the edges.  I put a piece of burlap behind the lion the zebra paper is almost like cloth.  Both are from Home Basic.  I also tied a piece of black jute around the card.  Boy is it hard to tie a bow with that stuff!!!  My final touch is a giraffe brad from Eyelet Outlet.  I have been wanting to use this forever but never had the right project for it.  It kind of got lost there but I don't care.  I got to use it!

Thanks so much to Doodle Pantry for this fabulous image and thank you for stopping by.  Have a good one!

Rebecca this is fantastic. It's so life-like. Didn't realize that you are a Copic Certified Designer. No wonder your coloring is so great. I'm gonna be just like you when I grow up. LOL.
