High Hopes Leo

This card is for a weekly colour challenge of Barely Banana, Groovy Guava and Chocolate Chip which are SU colours. I've matched as close as I can with Bazzil card.

The great Leo Lion stamp is from High Hopes Stamps, he's stamped in versafine black onyx on white card and coloured with prismacolor pencils, sansodor/oms and a paper stump. I added a sentiment with Doodlebug rub on letters, matted on chocolate glimmer card, tied string in the corner and mounted with dimension tape. The banana element is rounded off bazzil card that I embossed in a CB forest branches embossing folder, distressed the edges and swiped with Tim Holtz tea dye and walnut ink to give a forest trees backdrop. The background layer is apricot bazzil cut to fit the card blank. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris

Absolutely love this card!
He is such a gorgeous lion, your colouring is perfect. What a good idea using the paper behind to look like bars. Love the names for these products too.
