INSPIRED BY A FILM TITLE
That gives you so much scope. I had lots of fun going through my stamps trying to decide what to make. I had so many space film titles going through my head, but then I found this wonderful lion's head image and I knew exactly what film it was - The Lion King! I remember watching this film so many times when the children were younger. Here's my very clean and simple card:
Stamps: Happy Little Stampers - Born to be Wild
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress - Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Basic Black; Dylusions Mini Stencil - Holes; Clear Embossing Powder
I wanted to keep the focus on the lion's head - such a strong image. I used a mini Dylusions stencil for the background - inking with three shades of yellow to create a warm background. I stamped the image and greeting in bold black ink and embossed with clear powder. That's the front done - I like the way the image really pops against the 'wild' background. On the inside, I cut a mat layer of black card and on the white panel I stamped the lion's head again, this time using a couple of shades of yellow ink and added a birthday greeting. I'm submitting this CAS card to Love to Craft Challenge Blog - LTCCB#23, where the theme is anything goes.

Finally, I thought I'd share a clip from The Lion King - enjoy:
