Zoo Review - Lion Card

Just wanted to share a few things about my lion card. To get the main image with all the depth of color I used my markers for the main image. I used More Mustard, Basic Black, Sahara Sand and Dusty Durango. After that I used the same colors to water color the rest of the color to the lion.I also added a touch of the gold shimmer paint to the lion's main. I used the marker for that as well, I just ran the brush tip on the inside of the marker lid and then used my aquapainter; it seems to give a more vibrant color. I used the new Designer Frames the make the picture frame around the lion. I used chocolate chip cardstock and then colored the popped up part with my Early Espresso Marker to make it look like a weathered frame. I also used the square lattice embossing folder as well as the new striped one. Lastly a little bit of baker's twine and a couple of buttons and it's done! I think it looks like a picture frame hanging on a wall. Happy Stamping!

I think you were looking at my wish list and decided to just use the top stuff on one card :)
LOVE what you did with the frame - the extra color on the raised portion really defines it even more. tFS!

I love the gold added to the main. I couldn't have told you what it was inside, but I loved the mane the most.
