Just a Big Softie

Hello.  Welcome.  Been working on an ATC for Wicked Wednesday where this week the challenge is Leo.  I don't have many zodiac related items but I did remember I had this cute stamp by Kadoodle called Little Leo.  Time to ink it up........

I cut my ATC using Sizzix ATC and corners die, painted with three different shades of yellow acrylic and stamped Little Leo

I masked the stamped image and used PaperArtsy PS007 stencil and Whispers orange dye ink,  a sun stamp with red ink, a homecut Leo sign with DI Walnut Stain and woodblock letters to stamp LEO.   I used red ink first but it didn't show up very well so I over-stamped with black archival.  I quite like the off-set effect.  I have used DI Walnut Stain and Dried Marigold to add a bit of colour to Little Leo
