Hello friends! It’s the start of the very last week for August already! Fall is quickly approaching, and no… I’m not “lying” around, but I have been playing with this really cute King Lion digital image from Whimsy Stamps:
I really enjoyed coloring in this image! I’ve used my Copics to color it and of course I had to add some fun little details as you will see in the photo below.
I was trying to keep this design somewhat simple as the star of the show needs to be this image. To help with the design, I’ve printed out some Whimsy Stamps digital papers called Great Outdoors. Although the distress coloring on the edges of the image panel looks a little bright in the photo, it is more toned down on the card when seeing it IRL. I have also stamped the sentiment and some accents on the image panel from the Whimsy Stamps Painted Sayings clear stamp set. I added some ribbon through the center and then I added some wood veneer accents on each side of the image panel before popping it up with foam tape. I’ve also added a couple of gold enamel dots on each end of the sentiment above the image panel.
Here’s a closer look at my coloring of the image and you can also see that I’ve added some glossy accents to his nose, some shimmer on his crown as well as some red glitter Stickles in the center of the red gems on his crown. I’ve added even more glitter along the distressed edges of the image panel with some tinsel glitter Stickles. I used a distress tool to go around the edges.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my card today! I will be back again on Thursday for a new challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate you being here! 🙂
