Speckly Prehistoric Kinda Birthday

A little while back I saw this awesome card by Jill . It's funny how sometimes you can forget about the simplest techniques. I loved the effect of the speckled stamp kissed onto the solid dinosaur stamp. I also loved the fact that she used the dinosaur paired with a cheeky sentiment. When I first saw this set, I didn't think "hey, what a great set for a little boy", I thought "hey, that would be hilarious for certain milestone birthdays for people who have that sort of twisted sense of humour". So I was thrilled to see someone else use it that way.

This card has no cheeky sentiment, but I did use the speckled background to add some interest to the dinosaur. I thought river rock seemed like the perfect colour for a brontosaurus.

Supplies:
Stamps: Prehistoric Pals, Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Amazing to Zany
Ink: River Rock, Close to Cocoa, Wild Wasabi
Paper: River Rock, Vanilla, Close to Cocoa, Wild Wasabi
Accessories, etc.: distressing tool, pop dots

  1. Yay! I love your card! I can't tell you how excited it makes me when I've been able to inspire someone (even in such a small way). I am a fan of your work so I was glad to find your blog through technorati and now I can add it to my collection!
