The King of the Jungle or Zoo, That Is!

 I love to play with Mark's Finest Papers stamp set that have the wild animals stamps and this week I found some challenges where I can use them. This is the first time that I used the lion and it was fun coloring him with Copics and then. pencils. I added some whiskers using Spica pens as well. Love the look on his face and I was pleased with my coloring.
As a mat, I used some leftover grass cloth wallpaper ...not telling you how long I have kept this leftover wallpaper but it has been quite awhile. I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning sketches. Added some sentiments, brads, and ribbon to finish.

Challenges to enter:
Cards for Men: Use circles. Lion is good for a manly challenge.
Tuesday Morning Sketches: Shown on lower left.
Tuesday Throwdown: Add brads or eyelets to artwork. Brads are good for this king of the jungle.
For Fun Challenges: The challenge this week is GREEN - not the color to be green. and recycle something. Recycled old wallpaper.
Paperplay Challenge: Use an object not intended for crafting. Well that would be the wallpaper that I used.
Alphabet Challenge: Z is for zoo animals. The lion is always a favorite on a zoo visit.
Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers "Big Cats"
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Copics C9, E30,31,33,50,53,55, Y28,26
Aytou Spica Pens-Gold and Silver
Assorted Koh-i-noor Pencils
Papers: GKD Brown and White CS, Grass Cloth Wallpaper from leftovers
Nesties Circle Dies
Brads from Stash
Ribbon: MFP's Giraffe Print

Thanks for stopping by! Theresa

Great job coloring the lion and what a cool way to use up that grass wallpaper--very serenghetti! I think I seriously spelled that wrong. :/ My mom had that wallpaper in her dining room in the early 80's, so I'm guessing you've been hanging onto that paper for a while. :) Thanks for joining in our green challenge at For Fun Challenges! :)
