You are Rawr-some!

Hi there fellow crafters!  Today I bring you this super cute Tryannosaurus that called out to me to be colored.  I actually colored him while taking party in color challenge last month but I just couldn't put him away.  He NEEDED to be made into a card.  

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!
