Friday Sketchers ~ Dare U 2 Digi Stamp - Distressing & Simon Says Stamp - Distressing
I started with the sketch from Friday Sketchers and decided to use it for the challenge from Dare U 2 Digi Stamp, which entails distressing, as does the challenge from Simon says Stamp. I haven't entered any of the latter challenges before, but as they say, there's always a first time.
The digi-images are from Dustin Pike. I dropped the smaller dino into Word and reduced the size and flipped it to face in the other direction.
They are coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils and a water brush. I have discovered that I can colour onto much more porous card with pencils and obtain deeper colours, than I can with colouring pens.
The background was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder onto Core'dinations card and sanded. The rectangle was also embossed in a Cuttlebug, inked embossing folder. The circle was stamped with a Hero Arts stamp in Adirondack Woodland ink and over-stamped in gold with a dotty background stamp. All the edges were distressed with a file and the edges inked with Tim Holtz distressing inks.
The sentiment is from Unity stamps and I'm not really sure where the footprints are from, except that they are in a set of clear stamps of cats.
It was fun to do!
