Clear Dollar June Guest Designer Call!


I have wanted to 'try out' for the guest designer for a few months now, and this month I finally have time to do it, thanks to the army! {lol}
For this card, I used Basic Grey "Granola" paper and brads and the card back is kraft. I found the Basic Grey paper and brads at Clear Dollar Stamps along with the ribbon and the stamp set I chose, Zoo Critters, which can all be found at: http://www.newcleardollarstamps.com/servlet/Detail?no=3475
I watercolored this cute lion with creamy carmel for his body, more mustard for his mane and cameo coral for his nose, ears and mouth. All colors listed are SU. I used my newly purchased SU word window for the sentiment, which reads 'purr-mane-ent friends'. I have had this stamp set for a little while, and just found the inspiration to ink it up. This paper seems a little "jungley" to me, so the lion got his first kiss of ink. He is stamped with Stazon Black on watercolor paper. Thanks for looking (fingers crossed) and for sharing your thoughts!
