MFT Roar

I love the challenge of combining a sketch and a color challenge since I usually struggle with the restrictions of both.  I stamped, colored and die cut my animals. I made an extra lion head and elephant ear to pop up. The elephant ear is in place of the banner for the sketch.  I watercolored a piece of cardstock but scribbling my colors onto a block, spritzing on some water and placing a weight onto the block. I left the weight onto the block for a couple of minutes to get the desired color. After drying,  I die cut a frame using two of the Wonky Stitched Die-namics.

With the markers I water colored several pieces for the boarder of the sketch and finally decided to use a water colored chevron piece with all four of the MFT colors.   I die cut my letters using the MFT By the Letter Die-namics. I added an extra water colored chevron to the inside.
