A shabby lion

This is essentially the same card as this one, as you can see. Same design, different colours, different stamps. There’s no point in reinventing the wheel and, sometimes, there’s just no time!

This is for a demo at a workshop this Friday – the hostess likes earthy colours and wanted me to show her the popping pastels technique (click here for details). As most of the guests will have children, I thought I’d use this fun set.

Stamps: Wild About You (p32)
Cardstock: More Mustard, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Ink: Versamark®, More Mustard, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: ¼” Grosgrain Ribbon – More Mustard, Hodgepodge Hardware® - Pewter
