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

Welcome Sammy :-)

I made this card on behalf of the Simon Says Challenge team for Terra and Tim who have just had a new baby boy Samuel (click on his name to see a photo) Terra ia part of the Simon Says Stamp team.
Sammy also has a lovely 'big' sister to help take care of him :-)

I followed the lovely but quite complicated sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge !!I also adapted it slightly to make it square :-)

The House Mouse stamp is Cozy Toes,which I bought from the Simon Says Stamp store, isn't it cute :-)
I coloured the image with copics and added pebbles inc shimmer chalks to the background, I do love the effect these give, it doesn't show up on the photo though !
I used various papers, papermania, gemstones, coredinations, pebbles inc,,,pale blue hammered card. The mesh is from Magenta and the buttons are papermania too.
