I'm Bringing Home My Baby Dinosaur

(As always, click for a larger image)

Hey everyone! Long time no update! For that I apologize, but we all know how the holidays are. Busy, busy, busy!

But the wait for an update is over! Hooray! This card is for Cheri and Aimee's (That's me!) Copic Expert Class that is scheduled for January 23rd. It's easy to make a cute girl card, but boy cards always seem to be so much harder. Well, thanks to Greeting Farm and this adorable stamp (Part of the Happy Day Stamp Set which can be purchased, as always, from SGD), a cute boy card is easy! And how many young boys don't like dinosaurs?

So, if you would like to make this card (and the highly demanded reteaching of the Christmas Swing that can be found in one of my earlier post), and are well practised and confident with Copic Markers, come to Cheri and Aimee's Expert Copic class! Hope to see you there.

Colours used:
Skin: E02, E11, E5, E00
Eyes: G14
Hair: E57, E33, E31
T-Shirt: YG67, YG63, YG03
Pants: W-7, W-5, W-3, E11
Undershirt: W-5, W-3
Shoes: E57, W-5, W-3, E31
T-Rex: YG95, YG93, E31
Brontosaurus: G82, BG34, G02, BG11
Triceratops: YR16, Y38, Y08
Outline: YG11

And for this card tip:
If you have busy, colourful paper, it's okay to jazz up the stamp a bit to draw attention away from bright and busy designer paper! Focus on Skin and Hair, since with real people, it's what our eyes see first, and in a stamp like this, you want attention on the boy, and then what's around him. Not the other way around! :)
