Father's Day for My Dad

The challenge over at Simon Says was to make a Father's Day project. So I used the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday to make this card. My dad's favorite colors are brown and beige and blue, so I paired Victory with Lilac Mist. I LOVE this combination. Lilac Mist has always been one of my favorite CTMH colors! Here is my card:
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.

Materials used:
Paper: Victory Level 2 Paper Pack, Colonial White and Lilac Mist cardstock
Stamps: Life's a Jungle
Ink: Chocolate, Brown Bag, Sunflower
Other: Garden Wooden Shapes
