Stampin' Up!'s Zoo Review Set ... The Lion

We made this card during my recent Zoo Review class.  Thank you Cristy Butzen for the inspiration for this card.  I often go to Stampin' Connection or Splitcoaststampers for card ideas but always try to add a little twist to a card that I see there.  In this case, I added the sentiment to the card.
The card uses the Mosaic technique.  If you have not seen this before, this is done by taking the left over rubber from a wood mount set and cutting it into little pieces and placing them onto a wood block in a mosaic pattern.
After stamping and coloring the lion, we stamped over it using the mosaic block and versamark ink.  We then heat embossed it using clear embossing powder.  Finally, we used a sponge and Soft Suede ink and went over the entire area.  The ink colored the areas that were not embossed.  A baby wipe was used to clean up the embossed areas.  Pretty cool!
