Cuddly Lions

Hello! I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. I had time to play in a few of the VSN challlenges at SCS last night and this is one of the cards I came up with. The challenge was Swiss Cheese themed, to use a standard hole punch on your project and you only have 45 minutes to complete your card.

Here are a few detail photos...

I used Copics to color the image (from Cuddles and Hugs). Copics used were E31, YR14, YR12, E31 and Y23.

After coloring I heat embossed the image with clear embossing powder. Then I sponged with Certainly Celery ink.

Sponged Old Olive ink.

Sponged Creamy Caramel.

Stamped the bamboo and grasses (also from Cuddles and Hugs) usuing Old Olive ink and More Mustard (grass only).

I adhered the bottom layers together and then punched the holes in a random pattern around the edges.

Then sentiment was stamped and then cut out with my SU Word Window punch.

Thanks for visiting. I hope your day is full of stamping fun!

This is incredible Theresa! As always! I think that SU punch is something I should look into at some point. I want something that works well with sentiments. :)
