Go wild on your birthday

Hi everyone!

There’s a wonderful photo inspiration over at the Time Out challenge blog – gorgeous spring colours, but I really wanted to ink up my new Hero Arts background stamp, so here’s what I came up with!

I also love layering stamps so used a new-to-me set also from Hero Arts to create the lion. I was so impressed with how easy it was to line up these stamps sometimes it can take me quite a while to get a decent impression as I often misalign one stamp – not with the lion set. This was my first attempt and I just love how that lion turned out. Now that I’ve assembled it, the card and background together kind of reminds me of a lion version of the Bocca della Verita in Rome, don’t you think?!

Anyway, I’m also entering this into the current A Blog Named Hero challenge (favourite products).

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. well you did a great job layering up the stamps here-looks like you are a master at it to me! I love how you used our colours to inspire this card, it really works with such a different image to flowers-a really creative idea and so pleased to see you with us at Time Out-loving see all your cards in our challenges x


  2. This is Karen Bull, a design team member from A Blog Named Hero. I am really digging the color in the background and that circular pattern. Thank you for playing along this month. Find me on instagram @karenzbull


  3. Bocca Della Verita … just what came into my mind, Lucie … very Roman Holiday-esque! Cool, crisp, vibrant … and with such brilliant impact … a real eye catcher! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Anita 🙂
