ooh he is a mucky kid !! :-)



This is my 1st entry to the Basic Grey Challenge
The theme this week is paper piecing.
I used my new 'Summer Edwin' stamp and atamped him onto the dinosaur print paper from the Basic Grey Archaic booklet using memento brown ink pad and cut out his top,then stamped him onto plain card and coloured him with copics and dirtied his face and hands with chalks. I cut a dinosaur egg shape to sit him ( yes they used to lay them wonky !!!! lol) and coloured it with diluted alcohol inks then splattered it with alcohol inks too.
All the papers used are Basic Grey Archaic papers, I also used black/orange coredinations card to make the frame, which was cut out on my cricut and sanded. The sentiment is from the Clare Curd clear stamp set.
The Basic Grey papers and Edwin magnolia stamp are from the Simon Says Stamp store

Thanks for looking, your comments are appreciated so please leave me one :-)
