Dinosaur Hunt

Today I needed to make a birthday card for my pre-school age great-nephew.  I'm not sure what it says about me but this was my creative thought process:
"Must make a card for Hunter ... oooh, I haven't used those dinosaur stamps yet ... boys like dinosaurs ... Hunter ... T-Rex hunting vegesaurs" !!

SU, boy card, dinosaurs, Hunting dinosaur scene, Tin of Cards
Dinosaur scene - are they being hunted?
I like to think of the lead Triceratops saying to the other one "Run, Forest, Run!"

It all ends well though .... the T-Rex just wants to invite them to a birthday celebration!

No, it's just a dinosaur birthday party!

I was a bit pressed for time, so it's a very simple card.  The base is Cajun Craze followed by a layer of Lost Lagoon and the stamped layer is Crushed Curry.

I stamped the leading Triceratops first and masked it.  Then stamped the second Triceratops and masked that too.  Then I stamped the tree, leaves and foreground dots (I'm not sure if they're footprints or rocky ground!).  Then I stamped the T-Rex and sentiment.  I stamped the T-Rex right in the corner to try to give a little more depth to my simple little scene.  I used Mossy Meadow ink.

For the inside I stamped the T-Rex again, this time giving him a party hat and some foot prints.  The birthday sentiment is from the Tin of Cards set - it's one I use a lot.

I hope you like my simple little card - it was a lot of fun to make.  My mind is now spinning with more dinosaur scenes with more details (like a sky!).

Til next time
