Punch Lion

Tuesdays on Swap Sisters is Punch Art...a skill very close to my heart. This week the fun was 2-fold. 1...complete the animal and 2...use it in a card/3D/Scrapbook page. The first animal was a lion...and he was very cute. Here he is before I put him on the card...


and here is the card I came up with to put him on....


and a close up of the background....



Initially he did not have a tail, so I double punched a small and large oval and attached a small heart. I used Pocket Silhouettes for the 'grass' and also tried to 'sponge' the sky again, but infortunately you can't see it that well. I also used the "Sanded" BGS on the card to add some rough texture. I am not totally happy with the way the area behind the lion turned out...but I learned a lot putting it together.

Stuff Used:
CS: (SU) More Mustard, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
Ink: (SU) More Mustard, Close to Cocoa, Mellow Moss, Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Choc Chip SWM
Stamps: (SU) Pocket Silhouettes, Sanded BGS
Punches: too many to list
