I just love how this turned out. The Patchwork style really suited Elsa as she sews and I hope the lion conveyed our sadness at not being close enough to visit but our strength, hope and prayers for her recovery.
Lion is Magnolia Safari, image gifted by a friend, coloured with Copics and mane and tail highlighted with clear Spica pen for a bit of glam! He was cut out and mounted on a glimmer mist spritzed Scallop Circle (Spellbinders Nestabilities) which was then foam mounted onto my "patchwork" of beribboned pattern paper (all are DCWV 12" stack) zigzag stitched to pink pirouette (this and all other card stock are Stampin Up).
This card face was again then foam mounted onto the final straight stitched layer of green spot stitched to pink before attaching to the final Easel style card. Gold bling, ribbon & organza from stash.
Heres some close ups for detail of colouring his mane, flowers and layering. Flowers from stash, roses are from Wild Orchid & Bizzy Becs. Some of the stems have been twisted around a skewer to make tendrils to take the place of leaves. All the edges have been inked with pink on green patterns and green ink on pink toned papers with Momento cats eye chalk ink
