Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is based on the expression that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb and the challenge is to be inspired by animals. I literally took the word lion because I have the Stampendous lion crown stamp which I love and who doesn't get enough ink time.
I decided to create a card that I can use for one of the men in my family. I am thinking of putting a sentiment inside stating "Have a Royal Birthday" or Celebration.
I then layered in a few strips of Idea-Ology Tissue Tape - Symphony over the background. I stamped the lion using Ranger Archival Ink - Black. I colored the image with colored pencils and a waterbrush.
I died some burlap using the distress stain sprays. I added twine and Stampendous Luxe to the background.
I added a few charms (junkyard findings, Prima Flowers Washer Sunrise Sunset, Heart Locks) to the front and put it on a brown cardstock.
The ever generous Simon Says Stamp is offering a gift voucher to a randomly selected participant in the challenge, so come join in on the fun.
