Hey friends! Today I'm delighted to be joining Pretty Pink Posh on the June 2022 blog hop! There are so many cute new sets and I just couldn't wait to use those cute Dino sets!!
Be sure to stay tuned to the end of the post as there are 3 $50 gift certificates to be won! You'll also find a full list of blog participants.
For my project I have used Dinosaur Friends and Dinosaur Additions stamp set and co-ordinating dies. I started by stamping my images on to copic friendly cardstock with a black dye ink. I used some nice rich earthy tones to color my images...here are the colors I used in case you want to use the same:
T-Rex - YG67, YG63, YG61, E08, YR07
Brachiosaurus - E47, E44, E43, E42, YR24, YR23
Diplodocus - E44, Y26, Y23
Palm trees - G99, G94, E27, E25, E23
Grass, E43, E43, YG63, YG61
Bones - W3, W1, W0
Once all the images were colored I used the co ordinating dies to cut out all the images. I set them aside while I worked on the card scene.
I cut a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock to 4.5" x 3.25". I created some wavy shaped masks from sheets of masking paper and used these to create some desert style hills. I used Distress Ink in Vintage Photo, concentrating the color towards the tops of the hills. For some added interest and texture, I loosened some of the Vintage Photo with some water and used a small paint brush to flick on some splatters. For the sky I used Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass, making sure to blend from the top down to give a gradient effect.
Using a combination of liquid adhesive and foam tape I secured the images to the scene. The sentiment was stamped using a black pigment ink.
I really like the look of layers so I secured the scene panel to a white panel measuring 5 1/8" x 3 7/8" and secured the whole thing to a light grey A2 sized card base.
I created a matching tag using a tag die from Stitched Essentials 1 Dies. I used the same masking techniques and ink colors, I love giving cards with a matching tag!
