age is just a number...

  • red cardstock and 5x7"card blank
  • white stamping cardstock and Neenah classic crest for dinosaurs
  • SU! watercolour wash & dinoroar stamp sets
  • sentimentally yours- decadent alphabet & numbers stamps
  • archival 'sky blue' ink pad  & memento 'tuxedo black' ink pad
  • copics (E40,42,81. E40,42,43,44. V28, VB20,23,25,29. B91,93,95,97,99. N0. YG61,63,17,67. YR23,24,18,27.)
  • black sakura glaze pen
I cut a mat of cardstock to fit the front and inside of my card, I shaped this using a corner rounder by xcut. I stamped both mats using the large background stamp and light blue ink. I used some old templates I have to cut a large 50 from red cardstock, then glued this to the centre of my mat. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut my dinosaurs. I added these to the card using foam squares. I decided to use alphabet stamps to write a personalised sentiment inside my card, including a deliberate typo and embellished with another dinosaur. I added glaze pen over the top of my stamped letters and to the eyes of my dinosaurs.
