No Bones About it

I had an idea for this stamp set as soon as I saw it but when I tried to execute that idea it just wouldn't work. I told hubby about the idea and why it wouldn't work and he came up with the idea of a liftable flap, so off I went.

This is my second version of the card, on my first one I created mountains with distress ink but it was much too dark for a five year old boy but at least the concept worked, so I googled dino images and noticed the trees and though I can use my newly acquired "wee trees" and they worked perfectly.

I stamped the dinosaur in "gathered twigs" distress ink and hubby liked that it looked like skin so I didn't stamp it again to get complete coverage, I did however shade it a bit with copics and use my multi-liner to outline the image. I was very nervous outlining but I have to say it was loads easier than I thought and it gave it a more finished look.

Image: "no bones about it" stampin up, outer dinosaur stamped in "gathered twigs", bones stamped in "grout gray" mft stamps
Sentiment: "no bones about it" stampin up
Dies: "safari borders"  and square stax both mft
Trees: "wee stamps" clarity, stamped with gumdrop and jellybean ink from MFT
Sky: "tumbled glass" distress ink
Sand: "fine linen" from pti and "natural" from mft
Number: Shaded with "jellybean" ink from MFT
