Funky Fossil - Wild Things Birthday Card

I've been having a play with Funky Fossil stencils and stamps to create this birthday card.

I created the background square by covering the card in "Pumice Stone" Distress Oxide Ink.

Using low-tack masking tape, I secured the Funky Fossil "Tribal Background Stencil" over the square.  Using a blending tool, I applied the "Walnut Stain" Distresss Oxide Ink through the stencil.  I then mounted the finished square on to a piece of brown card and then adhered it to a cream coloured card blank.

I used the lion from the Funky Fossil "Wild Things Clear Stamp Set" stamped on to plain white card using Versafine "Vintage Sepia" brown shade of ink.  I then coloured the lion using a fine paint brush and Distress Oxide inks in the following shades:  Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge.  I added some touches of gold to the mane using a gold metallic pen.  I then cut the lion out and adhered on to the card.

I usde a Personal Impressions sentiment from their "Double Sayings" set, stamped in Versafine "Vintage Sepia.
