I used the new sketch from the Paper Craft Crew Challenge and knew I wanted to use this stamp set. I also wanted to use a piece from the Go Wild Designer Series Paper stack as the girdle in the centre of the sketch. That led me to my colour palette. I decided to use only those colours in that paper stack: Whisper White, Basic Black and the new Tip Top Taupe.
I wasn't sure what I wanted for my background. I thought of embossing the Tip Top Taupe but really wasn't satisfied with any of my embossing folders for this project. And then I thought, why not stamp some of the dinosaur skeletons on the Tip Top Taupe using the Tip Top Taupe ink? And so I did and the results are even better than I had hoped.
For my feature image which I stamped on Whisper White, I wanted to use both the skeleton and the silhouette. By first heat embossing the skeleton on the Whisper White using clear embossing powder, I was able to stamp the silhouette over it in Memento black ink. That, too, turned out better than I had hoped. I stamped the sentiment on Tip Top Taupe using Memento black ink.
After assembling all my pieces using Fast Fuse and also Dimensionals, I added some twine across the bottom of the Whisper White and also some carefully placed "arrows" which I had cut directly from a piece of the Go Wild Designer paper. I also cut three hoof prints from another piece of the designer paper to finish of the card.
I invite you to come over to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge to try your hand at creating a card using out new sketch.
