Dinosaur Days

When this month's new stamp releases came out at Clearly Besotted, I knew I had to get the dinosaur ones as they reminded me so much of the favourite cuddly toys that my grown up daughters had when they were children. And as one of them celebrates a birthday very soon, I've used them to make a card for her. I'm sure it will bring back some happy memories!

As all the elements are separate stamps, there was a LOT of masking involved. I always have to stop and think before starting, to remind myself it's necessary to start at the very front and work back to the background!

I coloured it in using Promarkers, sticking to the bold, bright colours that remind me of those special toys. Maybe not authentic dinosaur colours, but then, these are no ordinary dinosaurs!

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Alphabet Challenge - No Design Papers
AAA Cards - Mask (I used masking - lots and lots and LOTS of masking!)
