Rawring Through the Forest

Thank you for stopping by the Guild Hall. Today the Guardian of Glitter and I went on a foresty quest to locate a pack of thieves that were hiding in the Weathered Woods. Supposedly they had information on the location of a secret treasure cache that was rumoured to include a case of sparkling glitter bombs. As you can imagine, Nikki was rather eager to get her hands on those. As we crept through the woods, trying to locate one of the brigands, we heard a rustling coming from the thick undergrowth. Thinking it may be one of the thieves, I went to investigate. Suddenly, a small lion sprang from the foliage letting loose a tiny roar.

I started this ATC by stamping the adorable lion from the Lawn Fawn “Critters on the Savanna” set - which I literally just bought yesterday (with the coordinating dies of course) - onto watercolour paper. I then coloured him up using my Distress Markers and Hydra Brush of +60 wetness. I stamped and die cut the letters using the Lawn Fawn “Quinn’s ABCs” set and also coloured them with Distress Markers, matching them to the lion. The grass I cut using the Artbooking cartridge. The only thing I wish I did differently was make the dark green grass in the background a little taller so you could see more of it. Oh well…+70 hindsight XP for that.

This ATC will roar into the following challenges:

It turns out the cute little lion was no threat and just wanted to play. Since we were having no luck locating the thieves, the Guardian of Glitter and I put our quest on hold and played hide-and-seek with the small felid. After about fifteen minutes of romping through the forest we stumbled onto the entrance to a cave. Could this be the treasure cache we were seeking? Did the little leo lead us right to it? I looked questioningly at the small fellow. He grinned and let out one of his tiny roars before bounding back into the woods.
