The Lion King Jr. production by the DC Everest youth last spring was definitely a memorable show! I'm still thinking about it...two more productions later! It's THE reason I was instantly attracted to Lion Face by I Brake For Stamps. So many good memories and an amazing image to boot!
I started with a piece of water color paper and some white embossing powder. After heat embossing the image, I used various distress crayons to lay some color down on the whole piece. I used every color from the Distress Crayons #2 set (rusty hinge, fossilized amber, peeled paint, seedless preserves and festive berries), creating a diagonal block of color. Next, I spritz the card stock with water and blended the colors slightly. I layered more fossilized amber and rusty hinge on the lion face to accentuate it and make it pop.
Again on the card base, I used the main image to create some texture along the left hand side. To add to the shabby chic feel of the whole card, I distressed the edges of the black mat and added some sponged black soot to the card base.
Be Awesome, Jane
