Today we are previewing the dinosaurs illustrated by Dustin Pike. Mine is called Iguanadon...Iggy for short!
I think he is just the cutest! I was so happy to be given this dino to work with! I love his markings and his plume thing on the top (sorry, don't know much about dinos...I should ask a five year old!). The sentiment is also new this month. It's one of seven sentiments in a set called Monster Sentiments. Wait til you see the other sentiments in that set...super cute!
I made this card last night and got my color inspiration from the color challenge going on yesterday at SCS...kiwi kiss, riding hood red, and tangerine tango. I didn't have any of the kiwi or red left, but I did have it in the textured cardstock. It took longer to decide on a layout than it did to color the little guy! Once I found the tangerine tango dp (that I didn't know I had), it all fell into place! The green and orange buttons are PTI and the red is something I picked up at JoAnn's. I added some kiwi and red cardstock behind the sentiment and some piercing around the image and dp and I was all set to go! Oh, I also added some crystal effects to his eyes. I did this at very last minute and was so afraid I was going to get that stuff all over the place and have to start over! That ever happen to you? I managed to pull it off with messing it up!
Thanks for stopping by today, and please stop by all week to see what the DT and I have for you!
