When I found out that Paper Makeup with going to stop producing rubber stamps, I went on a buying spree. I love their stamps and will so miss their sentiments. This image is one of Dustin Pike's dinos. I love these images since they make such great little boy cards. I always need those.
The Pumpkin Pie background was stamped with SU's little background. I then used an old piece of card stock and covered it with small bits of masking tape. I rubbed Distress ink all over it and then covered the that with clear embossing powder to set the ink so it won't rub off. The background looks green even though I used blue ink because of the yellow tinge of the tape. Once I'd finished creating my background, I ran it through my Big Shot to get the shape I wanted. I am so going to do this again.
The dino is coloured with Copics. Not my usual colour choices but DS loves it and so does DH. He even asked me about how I made the background.
