The vine behind is Magnolia, but I don't think Diane is carrying it. I probably got it in an order from Sweden.
The papers are all from My Mind's Eye-the Ooh La La collection, For Him. I love the colors and decided to match the darkest color with Always Artichoke (SU!). It would also match grey very well. The paper edges are sponged with Artichoke ink.
The sentiment is one I just picked up Saturday when I was with my Stampin' Friends Lisa (lakind) and Tracy (LodiChick) at the Stamp and Scrap Tour show at the Hamburg Fairgrounds. We had so much fun! It (the sentiment) is by Inky Antics.
I colored htis last night when the lighting wasn't so good and I wasn't real crazy about it this morning. I did not do very much blending. But, I decided to go with it-needed a post and a card for our friend, after all!
The card is 5"x 5". Seems I've gone to more square ones lately, but A2s are still my first love!
I also tilted my papers behind the lion. I've seen sketches like this and beautiful cards done this way. I found out that it is VERY hard for me to do this! I like straight, even edges!
I guess that's it for today! Trying to get some things done, it's back to work tomorrow!
Please return tomorrow though, there will be another Copic creations Challenge post!
Thanks so much for stopping by! YOU'RE THE GREATEST, AND I'M NOT LION!!
