A 'Wild One'

Hello and Welcome to today's post for
I'm Guesting this time round for our New Challenge
and we are looking for Animals.
I went 'WILD' here inking up this Lion
stamp set. 
I started the background using 
Tim's Oxide Inks in Fossilized Amber
and Spiced Marmalade onto photo paper
smooching and drying as I went along.
I sealed that with Tim's Distress Glaze
which bring the colours back to life.
I then cut a peek a boo frame from MFT
and a stitched die
from watercolour paper and smooched
the same colours as above only in Distress this time.
Add a few splatters of Black Soot.
This was then popped onto black card stock.
Sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Pop over and see what the Dragonfly Designers
created HERE and hope you get time to
join in the Gallery.

I am going to pop this over to the
Anything Goes with an
Optional Twist of Birthday
and the CAS Challenge with Animal
as the Optional Twist.
Got both covered here.

And something a little different for
The Paper Players
Celebration Theme. It's their 400th Challenge

celebrating  with a Lion's Birthday Message.
Thanks for stopping by.

I do like a smooshy, distressed background and yours is great. The contrast with the black works perfectly. I like the clear link between the image and the sentiment. Thanks so much for joining in the 400th challenge celebrations at The Paper Players.
