Be Brave, Be Strong

This is my DT entry for My Time to Craft Challenge #158, "L" is for...  I chose this lion from Digi Doodle Shop.  I have always loved this image and was just waiting for something to use it for. The sentiment is from TLC Creations; I like it with this image.

This was one of those interesting coloring sessions.  I colored his mane first and added way too many reddish tones.  I went over it with the Copic O hoping to eliminate them.  I got rid of some, then I colored over them with a more brownish color.  Ah, live and learn.  I should have printed off another one, but I was in a hurry trying to get it finished on time.   I now have a very orangish maned lion.
The paper is from Graphic 45.  I used Copics to color the image.  The brad is from Stampin' Up.

Copics: E08, E09, E31, E33, E34, E35, E51, E53, W0. W1, W3, W5, Y23, YR12, YR14, YR30
