A Child'ish Card

A new challenge starts today at Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog. All the details can be found here but in a nutshell our hostess is lovely Janet and she is inviting us to make a card for a child.
When a hostess also designs stamps for Stampotique I like to use one of her designs and how could I resist this lovely lion. I cheered him up a little by masking the stamp whilst inking so I could draw a happier expression on his face just by slightly altering the eyebrows and mouth. A party hat and he's ready to rock 'n' roll.
I used gelatos for the background along with splattered alcohol inks and paints. Kids like touchy things so I added some texture with some modelling paste through a stencil.
I'm not sure who the recipient will be but who ever they are they are sure to be the mane attraction. Get it lol!
The stamps I used are: 
I do hope you like it. Wishing you a wonderful day. Sam xxx
