Magnolia Lion

Hi to you all, today I chose to use this Lion stamp from Magnolia to make a Father's Day card. Even though it won't be needed here in Australia until September a few challenges have this theme and I now have an early start. As my father is no longer with us I will give it to one of my children to give their Dad.
I have used kraft paper to stamp this image on and coloured with copics. Colour choice was a bit of trial and error to get what I wanted but he looks pretty good. Papers are from Paperloft's -Grandma's House range with some brown cardstock also. Edges coloured with Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and blended in further with a shimmery brown chalk. (Unfortunately you can't really see this effect in these photos)
Colours I used.

This card is for the following challenges,
Magnolia Stamp Lovers #12 - Father's Day

Papertake Weekly - Ice cream colours

Copic Creations - 'Other' Paper (kraft)

Cupcake Craft Challenge - One for the Boys

By The Cute And Girly - Old, New, Borrowed or Blue
(I've used my new stamp)

Just Magnolia - Mina's sketch (see below)
