King of Our Jungle


It's Saturday and time for another sketch from The Sweet Stop.
This was such a fun sketch and it came together in a snap too.  It's been a crazy last few weeks for me and I haven't had much time at all for creating or blogging.  :(    Thank goodness my husband isn't a regular reader of my blog because this is his Father's Day card from me.  The image is Whipper Snapper Designs, The King of the Jungle and was the very 1st stamp I ever bought....and can you believe this is the first time it's seen ink? (shame shame, I know)  It was super fun to color, but I'm not sure I'm lovin' how his mane turned out.  Like I said, I didn't have much time and it was a bit of a rush job....wish I could have spent more time on it.  Brooke also touched it while her hand was WET (OMG!!) and smeared this paw.  The DP is from the MME Mabel paper pad, I just love the warms rich colors.  The image panel and the crown were both popped up with foam tape for added dimension.  And normally I wouldn't add bling to a masculine card...but in this case I think it works!!  :)

I LOVE the way his mane turned out! Saw this over on the Sweet Stop and headed over to to sing your praises for another beautifully colored image! Makes me want to run my fingers through his mane. Perhaps your daughter had the same urge! It's your fault. HA!

Anita said...

Wendy, this is absolutely gorgeous! I thin the mane looks amazing. Love your paper choice, it goes't perfectly with the lion.

Shelby Goolsby said...

Fantastic, Wendy! Perfect for a father's day card!

Paula said...

Brilliant with the brown ric rac picking up the wavy bodrder & I love your use of neutrals here - browns, blacks & greys really working with that stunning paper. Love how the gold gems pick up on some of the stripe colours & how you've managed to collect those colours in your colouring - even the aqua with that aqua gem on the crown. It just shows that Memento Tuxedo Black is not waterfast!!

PS _ The mane is fine - actually rather striking.
