Well i thought I might try and get ahead of myself and get on with some of the cards I will need for october as I didn't realise there are so many coming up events, I have 2 wedding anniversarries, 2 nephews birthdays a bro in law and sis in law birthday and then at the begining of nov a niece and my bro's 40th and halloween between.
i made this as a birthday card for one of my nephews not sure which yet, one will be 6 the other 9, think it might be for the younger of the 2.
I used high hopes images of the lion and jungle background. For some daft reason that I did regret a couple of times I decided to stamp the background on acetate as I could then have mirror images , well it seemed a good idea at the time. I tried colouring with promarkers but they weren't bright enough so then went with sakuras some of which worked better than others and non liked glue so after redoing the colouring I went with brads to fasten them on to the base. The cute sentiment is one elainwe from technophobes blog sent me when she was having a craft clear out very kind lady and it works so well with these images so BIG thankyou Elaine.
The papers are scraps from my stash and the fluffy twiney not sure what to call it I thought just finished it all off like a jungle vine. The paw print is from a see dee set of dogs but I won't tell the lion if you don't.Looking at my card now it looks a bit as if the lion is levetating but never mind I'm sure my nephew won't even notice my design flaw.
