You're Not Extinct

Hi there!!

I'm popping in quick today because i have three other cards to post today!! I didn;t release till to late that yesterday was Friday and i should have posted a card or to, so to get the cards in before the deadline and before i have to work later this afternoon, i have to get these posts up over the next few hours!!

So on to my TAWS card! The October release included this super cute mini set Lava You, its free with a $40 purchase and is super cute!! It goes great with last months release!!! I am playing along with Stamplorations Sketch Challenge:

Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - The Alley Way Stamps
I started with a white card stock panel and used washi tape to mask off the edges. I stamped the cute little dinosaur in the Lava You set all around the rectangle i made with the washi tape. Next i stamped the dino again on post it notes so i could mask all the dinosaurs.

Then i used distress inks to fill in the rectangle. Once it was done i flicked in water over the background which i thought added some inetrest to the background. Then i removed the masks and then the washi tape. However, when i removing the washi tape some of the paper came with it (even though i tested it before starting) so i colored the dinosaurs with green copic markers then i had to trim off the white edge and then added the panel to a white card base with foam dots.

I stamped Rawr from the Stomper set on the right side of the panel, like the sketch. I colored in the sentiment with a green copic I added the sentiment 'at least you're not extinct' in brown ink below the panel.

I hope you have a wonderful day!!!

  1. Oh. Man.
    I love this.
    Those colors remind me totally of my preppy days at Hillsdale.
    And that cheeky sentiment is outta this world.
