Proud Lions

The spring printing spree I've been on hasn't slowed yet. I made another new card design! This time, a pride of lions is lounging lazily under a tree. My favorite is the lioness in the tree all flopped out. The life!

This print marks the first time I've mixed my own custom color ink for a print. Gocco inks come in such an array that I've never needed to stray from using ink straight from the tube. This time I had a very specific idea of what I was going for. I wanted a 60s/70s cream and copper and goldenrod color scheme so I mixed an ink with 3 parts fancy sparkle gold, 1 part red and a touch of dark brown. I like it!

This card is available in my Etsy shop (as if you didn't know that was what I was getting at).
