Cecil's death this month made us more aware of lions on the brink of extinction so perhaps some good will come from this senseless killing.
I've made this tag to honor him and hope you'll visit Lion Aid's facebook page if you'd like more information on what can be done to save them.
I began with a page from a very old cookbook (copyright 1887) pasted to the front of a manila tag.
The paper is so old it crumbles so a layer of acrylic medium was used to stabilize it.
An image transfer of Cecil was applied and features his distinctive black mane (which was his trademark).
I stamped the wing/crown image (Tim Holtz) on a scrap of tissue paper then embellished it with gel pens and colored pencils.
There's a strip of washi tape behind the Industrious sticker frame and a glaze of paint and Graphitint pencils added background color.
I'm linking to Simon's Monday blog challenge where this week's theme is no ordinary paper.
