The Wild Side

>> Saturday, June 30, 2012

Hi Everyone,

It's Karin, filling in for Pam today.... Not only is the lion the king of the jungle, he's also the king of this card.  The King Lion is such a beautiful new stamp and it reminded me of something when I was creating with it.  Last time I visited the zoo, I was present for the loudest lion roar ever.  Well, maybe it wasn't Africa safari loud, but it sure took me by surprise!  Normally he's just sleeping in the shade, so to see him up, and to actually hear him, was a real treat :)

I decided to distress my card, so after stamping him, I tore and inked the edges of my paper.  I layered him on some embossed distressed stripes, and used the new Peacock Feather along the side of my card.  I used some twine knots for embellishments, thought that looked rustic and blanced it out with 3 brown epoxy stickers on the other side.


Here you can see that I embossed the Peacock Feathers with some rainbow embossing powder. 


And I can't forget to mention the Walk on the Wild Side sentiment that pairs perfectly with him!

Pop on over to the DRS Designs store and see all of the newly released stamps!

Have a great Saturday!
