No Lion!

Happy Monday! I went down a new rabbit hole this weekend with a new podcast and a new TV show. 

The new podcast is hosted by Donnie Wahlberg and the first case is the murder that inspired the Amityville Horror movie. I'm contractually obligated as a GenXer to be obsessed with the Amityville Horror so I tried it and it's great! He has a phenomenal voice that sort of adds suspense, and there's SO much detail in there that I bet you have not heard - I didn't! It's called Very Scary People

Then, because I am not much of a TV person, I did not know that People Magazine had a true crime show and it's pretty good! I went back and watched the Delphi episode and a few others and it was very well done. Too many ads, but a good show. 

Speaking of ads, you HAVE to watch this - it's hilarious and true.

I'm here today with the most ADORABLE little lion! I stamped the lion with white ink after using the most amazing embossing powder tool in the world - look how crisp my embossing is on that detailed stamp - ON WATERCOLOR PAPER. That tool is the bomb. 

I embossed it with detailed white embossing powder, and then sprinkled yellow, red and teal infusions over it and lightly misted it. While it was wet, I dabbed up some of the teal to make the background paler than the foreground. When it was dry, I used the middle stencil from this set and some Salvaged Patina Distress ink to make bubbles in the background. I added a tiny bit of shading around his face and under his mane for dimension with a brown colored pencil.

The sentiment is from the same set. How cute is he? He has a little flower power vibe that I am here for!

I hope you had a great weekend and cooked something amazing. I made the bulgogi and ssamjang again! It's so addicting. Then I made okonomiyaki last night and used the ssamjang on those as well. For some reason the pancakes came out perfect this time - I must have changed the temperature just right. 

Have a great week!
