Mark’s Finest Papers


I stamped the lion with black stazon on white cardstock. I used a brayer to add light brown ink over the top. I added additional color with prisma colored pencils. I cut out the lion using a circle template. I zig zagged the panels and added twine and brads. Posted by Picasa

  1. I like the stitching and brads at the edges. And your coloring of the lion is very natural looking.
