Welcome to the (rainbow) jungle

Welcome to the jungle, we got fun and crafts! And my heart is swinging with all the new wild products from the Safari release. For this card, I decided to throw it back to one of my favorite designers from my childhood. 

I started the background by blending a rainbow of colors across the panel using Catherine Pooler inks.

Then I used the Safari Spots 4X4 stencil with blank ink, right over the rainbow. To get the continuous pattern across the card front, I flipped the stencil to make a mirror image, be careful to not make a seam. I did it in a spot that I knew would be covered. 

I used the lion from the May Die of the Month “Wild Things.” I spread Teal Candy Coat on white cardstock. Once dried, I used it to die cut the mane and the tail. I used some Fabulous Fibers behind the lion and attached him to a black scalloped oval with foam tape. The sentiment is from the “Wild and Free” stamp set. I thought the rainbow was a cute touch to connect the focal image to the sentiment. The rainbow is from the “Be Happy” die set

Since I created this on a black card base, I put a piece of white cardstock on the inside. To give it some interest, I stenciled lightly around the edges using whatever ink was left on my brushes from inking the background. 

If you would like to see the replay of the YouTube live when I created this card, you can view it here.
