Lion Card

Hi everyone,

Thank you all for your lovely comments and kind words on my last posts. They are very much appreciated.

Todays card has been made using an older CI stamp another one of Ellie Mulligan designs. I thought I would add it here because it was a recent sample made and its in keeping with the animal theme.

I wanted a bit of a faux 3D effect with this card. I have decoupaged the animals up in the past but I thought I would try using a die and cut out square sections. I quite like it. It does look a little different in real life and has a bit of 3D effect.

I stamped my image onto coated card stock using Versa Clair brown ink, embossed it, and coloured the image. I only used this ink pad because I can’t lay my hands on a decent brown permanent ink hence the embossing. I know these are popular ink pads but I am not sure about them yet for stamping fine detail.

I randomly stamped the background with the CI Harlequin stamp using Versa magic ink. That is a permanent ink and gives a nice soft impression on background. I like these ink pads.

I then trimmed the stamped piece to size and die cut it. I made up the card as seen and added the little die cut squares using foam tape.

I hope that makes sense. I went off a bit at a tangent rambling on about ink.

CI stamps: Harlequin Script CI 171 and Lion King (Ellie Mulligan Design) CI 524.

Thats about it from me today.

Thank you for looking.

Take care,

    Again a totally different way to use the lion and a beautiful one! Great how the eye goes straight to all the details of the lion and the shapes you put it on! Stay save and Hugs, Gerrina
