I was SO "Dino Park" is a fantastic set that is inspired by the Jurassic Park movie series... and I can't get enough... for real. I was SO excited when Audra gave me it for this release!
I started this card with one thing in mind... pooooooo. It took a lot of mixing, since apparently I don't own anything brown, but eventually I got the right combination of Pearl Pens and Nuvo drops to make a giant pile... I will admit I'm slightly disappointed that it cracked but I think that ultimately it adds to the character of the card. Next I took some Gelatos (again, I don't own browns!) and mixed purple and green to make a nice poop color that I smeared into the cracks and over the top. I think it looks pretty, poopy!
The card background I made from daubing Distress Oxide inks onto white card stock. I made sure the dino prints got put in the correct spots to show he was there. Ian took me a little bit of coloring, I'm super unsure of coloring anything other than the pastiest of skin-tones. I'm SO happy with how he came out though!
Lastly... that sentiment... it completely describes how I feel in life right now. LOL But I used the Tuxedo Black MementoLuxe to give it a touch of texture and finished filled the tag hole with some Nuvo drops, I two-toned it by using the orange glitter first, then dropping some of the clear in the center.
I also really wanted to show off little Ms. Raptor... because duhhh. I have been trying to branch out and do tags and things that are out of my comfort zone, and frankly are less time consuming than a card for me.
I started by finding a tag I liked, I have a drawer full and can never seem to make a dent in it, I think the one I used came from a Stampin' Up kit. So many things are square or rectangle that when I saw the circle this vision popped in my head. I got something SUPER fun from Zulily (of all places!) Metallic Creative Medium! So I had to use it... clearly. I grabbed the bronze, because there is something Jurassic Park about the metal bronze, it just goes for me. I used a Ranger stencil called "Small Bubbles" and just covered the tag.
Next, I grabbed about 5 of my darker green Copic markers, and one grey. I colored small circles and spotches with one color after another to give her skin a reptile feel. With the lightest green I used, I went over all of the image. I had to fussy her out because my Brother Scan 'n Cut and I were fighting... but I took my 2" circle punch and cut her down to fit on the tag.
Last touches were the sentiment, I tried to stamp it on the tag, that didn't work well. So, another of my endless supplies is little tiny tags for sentiments, again, I'm pretty sure this came from an SU kit. I took my good old standard Memento black ink and stamped it, then used SU dimensionals to bump it off the tag. I grabbed a mossy green ribbon (would've LOVED a brown, but again with my theme of no brown anything...) and topped off the tag.
I'm sure you can all guess I will be investing in some brown ribbon, Nuvo drops, and whatever else I can get my hands on to add to my stock!
I hope you've enjoyed my creations, and now I want you to check out my friends and teammates creations!
