If you follow my blogs on Facebook, you may have noticed that I couldn't go away on holiday without taking just a little bit of crafting with me. I'm sure my fellow sun worshippers thought I was stark raving mad sitting there in my beach chair in my pink tankini colouring little dinosaurs. What can I say, mad as a hatter...
This card is inspired by this weeks The Card Concept challenge which is Oh Baby! My chosen style for this card is Clean & Layering. I also used this week's Freshly Made Sketch for inspiration. In addition, I'm entering this card into this week's Addicted to Stamps and More which is themed Make Your Mark, as I coloured the cute little dinos with markers and a blender pen. Last but not least, I'm also entering Stampin' Royalty challenge #235 which is "Keep it simple" as this is at least for my style a rather clean and simple card.
I stamped the dinos in black onto watercolour paper and coloured with Tim Holtz and Stampin' Write markers and a blender pen. I stamped two different heart stamps for the background. The smaller hearts are actually a lilac colour, but it looks grey on the picture. The sentiment is heat embossed using silver powder onto vellum. This card existed in quite a few different guises before it ended up as it did, I tried so many different papers for the banners, but this simple layout worked best.
