No Lion, It's Your Birthday

Woo hoo, the weekend is almost here!  I can't believe we are almost half way through the year, before you know it the holiday season will be upon us. Egads!  

This week on the Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge we are creating cards with an animal theme.  


I started by stamping this sweet little lion from Penny Black in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and coloring him in with Copic markers. I added glitter to his beautiful mane with a glue pen and some Warm Highlights Glitter Ritz glitter.  After the glue had dried under the glitter I added a bit more color with a Copic marker.  Don't worry, this glitter is so microfine, that it won't be a problem for your marker nib.  I had saved the Mojo Monday 230 sketch from a few months ago and finally got a chance to play with it.  I ended up turning the sketch on it's side as I thought it would look good to have the scallop edge on the side instead of the bottom.  I didn't have a sentiment that I thought was just right, so I generated this one on the computer using my new favorite font LD Woodland, I think it is perfect for this image.  The solid cardstocks are from American Crafts and this fun print is from an older Bo Bunny collection.  I wanted this card to be fairly flat so all layers were adhered with Tombow Mono Dots Roller, this has to be my favorite all time adhesive when you are needing to layer paper to paper without all of the fussy pop up layers.  

My Twisted Thursday teamies and I would love to have you play along with us this week.  You can find all of the details HERE.

I LOVE this card and that sweet little lion Melissa! The glitter on his mane is inspired! The shape of his face reminds me of my orange cat, KitKat! Big hugs to you!
