I started by printing the image out on Bristol paper. I knew that I wanted to try using my Zig Real Brush Clean Color markers. I chose a dark green that I blended out a little with a lighter green. I blended it out the rest of the way with water using a brush pen. Doing it this way seemed to give a lot of texture to the image. Which I felt was perfect to imitate dinosaur skin!
Next I used the smaller banner die to cut out this paper from the super fun, Fun in the Sun Doodlebug paper pad. I had a hard time deciding on a color to put next as it felt like too much of a contrast. I whipped out a stencil and sponged on Broken China distress ink. Ahh, much better! I used foam tape to pop the dino onto the banner piece. All other layers were mounted flat. The bottom layer that you can barely see is kraft.
I cut the "Awesome" from the Greeting Word dies 3 times and glued them all together. The top layer I generously coated with Wink of Stella. The "You are" came from the Tiny Sentiments set. And because I just can't resist, sequins! The sequins are from Comet and Skyfall.
Now I want to collect the rest of the dinosuars! They would be perfect to used in the current Watercolor challenge on the Craftin Desert Divas Facebook group. Remember, everyone gets a free digital stamp just to play along!
