Today we are going all the way back to card I made for my dad's birthday in 1997! Not one of my earliest creations, but one that shows a few techniques.
The lion in the tree and the foliage are both Art Impression stamps. The ink is most likely Colorbox pigment ink for the foliage and Memories black for the main image. The lion and the tree trunk were done with colored pencils and a Dove blender. Wafer thin dies were not on the market yet, but Fiskars scissors in all styles were popular. I used a Mulberry paper to layer behind the stamped image. My maiden name was Lyon, so the best way to create a personalized card for my dad, is to use a lion stamp for Mr. Lyon.
Thanks for stopping by! As usual I love to here a comment or two!
