You're dino-mite!

The Cas Colours & Skaetches #170 is a colour challenge.

For my card I used the sentiment from Lawn Fawn critters from the past and the Marianne design die set Col 1400. I got it this afternoon on purpose for this card, well I wanted it for a while, but it just made sense now..lol.

I used dark brown ( for the choclate chip) for the eyes, spots and spine and toenails, pink for one and blue for the other dinosaur.

To ground them  I sponged on Ground Espresso from Distress inks in a disorderly fashion, splodgy on purpose so with would look like a dust trail (if that's what they call it), you know those big clouds of dust/sand you see in Westerns ;-).


Mounted the critters with foamtape, it's a 6"x6" inch card as the critters are big and I wanted loads of empty CAS space.
