A Good Friend

"Leon" is out on his branch absorbing some much needed sun! He is well hidden but if you look through the tree branches you just may be able to spot him <smile>. 
He is meeting his neighbours from his favourite branch and waving and smiling as they come out into the sun themselves. 
Leon is perfect to add to my just because, thinking of you stash - a stash that I will keep adding to as I send out love, hugs and hopefully smiles to my friends and family while we can't be together.

I coloured friendly Leon with Copics and added a bit of shading with Prismacolor pencils. A cloud die and ink were perfect for adding some clouds around him. 
I wanted it to look like you were looking through tree branches to see him so I took a branch die and cut it out multiple times. I cut some "extra" leaves and added them to each die to make the leaves seem thicker. I also didn't glue them all down flat to help add some dimension. 
Some ribbon and gumdrops finish off my card.
