I used my blending pen and stamp pads to color in the lion. I'm trying to imitate the look of copics (since I don't have any), and it really can't do as detailed of a job as I'd like it to. The ink pads in the picture are the ones I used to color the lion with.
This lion reminded me of a stuffed lion my dad had when I was growing up. He played the part of the lion in Daniel, Darius and De'Lion, a church play we did when I was little. I think that's what got him to like lions. I really hope he'll like this card.
