Hakuna Matata

It means no worries :D

This card is for the Victoria Case challenge which is to use their sketch (below) and for Color create which is to use pink, orange and green.

Here's my entry ths week, I love love love this little lion!

The image is Victoria Case baby lion (cute isnt he!) and I coloured with copic markers. I added clear gloss to the water and touches of stickles glitter to make it sparkly and shiny. The green background is starburst stains bells of ireland green overstamped with a stampscapes frond stamp. The palm trees are made with bits of brown card shaded with a white pen and the palm leaves are starburst stains in cathedral pines green. The coconuts are cut from brown card then I glued cotton wool on and dyed them with starburst stains (one of the browns) then when dried I fluffed them up so they look like a shaggy coconut lol! Wording is from a dymo :)

Must tell you, I showed this one in playgroup and someone asked if it was colouring by numbers....Oh how I laughed :-/

The twinkling water :)

My shaggy coconuts and palm leaves :)
