Thanks – I ain’t lion!

It’s Anything Goes at Craft Your Passion this week.We have 3 fabby sponsors too.Whimsy Stamps,Sassy Studios and Letraset have some great prizes on offer.Hop on over to play along and don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT’s wonderful work.

I was lucky enough to get to play with Courageous Carl by Crissy Armstrong from Whimsy Stamps.I know lions are naturally more tawny but I chose orangey shades to tone in with the papers.He’s been coloured with Promarkers with a touch of glaze pen his nose and eyes.Rather than grab the Nesties I decided to reach for some of my fave punches for a change.The only Nestie I’ve used is to cut the piece the sentiment is stamped on.Some yellow pearls complete the card.
