Lion Love

Happy Mothers Day :)

And in typical fashion, with a special occasion on top of us, I am doing the complete opposite of what the event dictates. Oh my Inner Rebel! In my defence, when I was rummaging through my stash deciding what to play with, Lion Love (UK Peeps, you can get Whimsy Stamps from Tracy at Dies To Die For.) caught my eye. I really wanted to tackle his mane.

In a further act of rebelliousness, I put him with some of the more neutral coloured paper from the Painted Prints Smitten Paper Pad. (Luuuuuuuuuurve this pad!) You know me, I'm terrible at pale colours!

Anyway, hope you have a gorgeous day, whatever you get up to... 

Copics Used... 
Fur; E51, E53, E43, W3, W5

Love the way you've coloured him, I'm only just starting to get to grips with fur with my distress inks. I don't have this particular stamp so I can't experiment, but something deep within me (of course I have a weird streak in me that suggests all sorts of things), wants me to to colour that mane like an afro, possibly in a bright colour...I'm getting visions of the musical hair....ok, moving along, nothing to see here.... Hope you're having a wonderful Mother's Day :) xx
