Two dinosaurs walked in the door


If I were Karen I'd have some funny little joke about two dinosaurs walked in the door... but since I'm not, I'll just say that I'm channeling Karen's fabulous misting abilities on this card.  It's another Super Sketchy Sunday at 365 Cards and we've got another fun sketch for you to play along with.  I made the fall card first, using Cristina's masking technique, but decided the card was too literal a take on the sketch (something I struggle with), so I pulled out the dinosaurs...    Enjoy.  I'm super excited that I'm going to be spending my Sunday at a wedding, with that fabulous husband of mine who's being traveling for the last 3 weeks, so my payback for 3 weeks of solo parenting is 36 hours without children, woo hoo!



Materials: Dinosaur card: Paper Source dinosaur stamps, colored pencils, PTI button die, Hero Arts swirl stamp, Tim Holtz Ornamental die for masking, Tattered Angels black mister, Smooch red and blue misters, natural fiber, Versafine black ink

Happy Autumn Card: PTI Mailbox greetings leaves and sentiment, Spellbinders Nestabilities Label one, PTI double sided banner die, Tim Holtz distress inks mustard seed, ripe persimmons, wild honey and antique linen, button from stash, May Arts natural fiber, PTI kraft card stock
