Dino Glow

I needed a card for a friend's son who is turning 4 today. Troy is at his birthday party now. *sigh* I thought that using my Dino-Mite set from SU (retired) would be a good choice. I also thought that it would look good using the Glowing Image technique from the current TJ newsletter.

Well, I started this last night and still spent a couple hours on it this morning! No the technique isn't difficult I just chose a bit much to have to mask and reverse mask! Also, I tried giving this a bit of Zindorf's brayering style which added time to the whole process. All this for a 4 y/o's birthday card! Oh, and my white CRAFT ink didn't want to dry! Even after I (tried) heat setting it.

This card is designed so that the Very Vanilla layer opens and is layered on the quartered sheet of Close to Cocoa. That is why there is a strange edge to the bottom, my c/s was buckled due to the heat gun.

Stamps: Dino-Mite (SU); Ink: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Ballet Blue, Night of Navy, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, CRAFT White; Paper: Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla; Accessories: Brayer, Signo gel pen, Post-It notes, COPIC G21 (grass), 1" Circle punch (sun).
