Sketchy with H2H

So, this week Heart2Heart has decided to throw a sketch out for interpretation.

Use it as is  - - flip it, move it around - your choice.  I am, of course, loving the tulips in the image!!!

I followed the sketch and left the elements in the same place as shown in the sketch.

This is what I came up with.

Wild Wonders had the perfect lion image which I stamped once with honey ink and then stamped the mane again with honey and saddle inks, edge rolling to get the shading.  I fussy cut the mane and added to the lion with foam tape, edge distressing with my scissors to give it a rougher look.  I then inked around the lion with saddle ink.

The sentiment "It's about to get wild around here" is stamped in slate.  Three dark grey gems from the grey gem assortment finishes up the card.

The paper is from  Babycakes, matted on whisper cardstock.  The zip strips I cut down to the diaper pins for the three thin strips.  Remember to use those zip strips - don't throw them away!!




  1. So adorable! Love the dimension on the lion from pop dotting and sponging. The sweet zip strip with safety pins really takes it over the top cute! Thanks for sharing your art with us at Heart2Heart Challenges this week!
