It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:
And here is my take:
I had fun making this card! With the colors being a bit dark, I knew I wanted a light base and to use the colors as accents. Once I saw the dinosaurs in my index, I knew they’d be perfect.
The layout is from a card in the current Stampin’Up catalog (pg 131).
The solid dinosaur image is a second-generation inking of Eggplant, as are the footprints in the background (well, second-gen with Suede, not Eggplant 😀 ). I think I decided it would be better to stamp the bones first and then center the solid image over them; but this was good enough to get on with.
The sentiments are selectively inked from 2 different sayings within the set.
I chose to go with New Leaf (by Papertrey) instead of Cucumber only because I had scrap paper of New Leaf and nothing cut yet of Cucumber. It is a pretty good match though.
My card base and focal panel are a speckled card stock. I like using that type of card stock as it provides interest/texture.
I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!
Thanks for stopping by!

The colours this week really suit the stamp set you have used. I love the torn paper layers and rustic feel you have created, yet still keeping your card awesomely CAS. FAB, Hugs Bev x
Well I would never have thought to use these colours for a dinosaur themed card – shows how wrong I am because they’ve worked brilliantly.
This is such a cute set, I love it! Great use of the colours too, they really have worked well on this great fun card. Caro x
I’m with Jane – I never would have thought to use these colors for a dinosaur, but your card is – dare I say – awesome! 🙂 I love the rustic look of the speckled background, too.
I too wouldn’t have thought to make a dinosaur with these colours, but it really works. I may have to break down and get this set, it’s so much fun. Sorry to be so late commenting, I had a last minute business trip this week which messed up my schedule a little. Liz x
