Creative Fingers Challenge – Frame it

The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.

Proverbs 28:1

The last time that Aurora Wings sponsored Creative fingers, one of my my fellow DT used this image and I thought that it would be lovely with a CS Lewis quote.  The quote was added in Serif Craft artist for this weeks “Frame it” challenge.

I used Promarkers in the following colours:
Lion – Vanilla, Tan, Cinnamon; Poppies and dress -Antique Pink, Ruby, Cardinal Red; Hair – Vanilla, Honeycomb, Cinnamon, Cocoa;  Leaves – Moss, Pear Green, Lime Twist; Oranges – Honeycomb, Spice, Vanilla
