Today's card was created for the Stamping In Design Challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs. I have to say this card was one of the most labor intensive I have done. I started on it last night. I had to run out to teach a Copic class and got home fairly late. This morning after attempting to sleep in... thoughts kept running through my head and I had to get up and act on them.

When I took it downstairs to show dear hubby, as I sometimes do, he went on and on about the card. But good hubbys do that right? But after I walked back upstairs and started to look closely at the card I GOT what he was talking about. And honestly it is truly a GOD thing! I had nothing to do with it. Take a close look at the lion. Do you notice that special glow around his head? Jesus is often referred to as a Lion in the Bible. In the books by C.S. Lewis about Narnia, the main character (Aslan) is a Lion. For those of you not familiar with these books, the adventures of Aslan are a fictional account of Jesus and his defeat of Satan. Well I did not intend to do that... the coloring just happened that way... So to God be the Glory! Blessings to you on this wonderful day!


I did have to use a mask of the lion image in order to create the sun image. Otherwise the remaining coloring was done with the resist technique. This is the first time in a while I have not used my trusty Copics. Hopefully it will not be the last.
