Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge- Create with Carl!

Dinosaurs Rock

Its thestampinupbloke again: Its Friday night aren't we all supposed to be having a drink and sleeping in front of the TV???????? I was until!!!!!!
Petra said "wake up" (I was asleep on the couch) there is a new challenge, we have to be in the first one ever. Come on we are making cards now. 

Have you ever had to make a card because you have to? Thank goodness for card sketches Petra handed me her iPad and said here are the sketches find one its easy. I found one from an old Mojo Monday challenge and started to make it my own. Three colours and a stamp set Petra's challenge to me. I haven't used the dinosaur stamp set yet so that was my first choice. The new in colours "Watermelon Wonder" and Cucumber Crush" plus "Island Indigo " and I was set. 

I like the Dino stamp set because you have the block image and the bones image. I wanted to use both of them and emboss the bones, to get a real bone look I embossed in white.  A couple of green ferny fronds and some dots to walk on and the  Dino stamping was done. 

The hardest part was the sentiment, not picking it , but stamping it. Every time I stamped it on it seemed to have bubbles in the ink and it looked terrible. I tried to remove some of the ink by stamping it out on the blotter sheet I was using and it got better. After a few go's it worked out but it was really weird for a bit. 

So I am off back to the couch. All the best for the weekend.

Till next time - Happy crafting - "may all your cuts be Paper"
