No Bones About It…

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:


And here is my take:

Dino Awesome  | by karen @ carefree creations

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 πŸ˜€ ). 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!

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. I’m with Jane – I never would have thought to use these colors for a dinosaur, but your card is – dare I say – awesome! πŸ™‚ I love the rustic look of the speckled background, too.

  4. 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
