Colour Create boy's card


The Colour Create challenge this week was green,brown and orange with the added extra of making a male card.

Was originally going to give it a miss this week,but then remembered my BG Archaic pad...perfect colours...dinosaurs...perfect for a little boy [or even for a little girl if they are anything like DD1 who at age 6 spent much of her life BEING a dinosaur!!! 'The Land Before Time' has much to answer for- at age 24 she still has her cuddly Sarah dinosaur!!]

Don't have any dinosaur stamps...so had to draw and then watercolour this little chap...all papers and brads BG Archaic...Craftwork Cards chocolate treats...butterfly Clare Curd Doodles stamp on shrink plastic...sentiments also Clare Curd.
As some of you know...my camera doesn't like greens...so they tend to look brown!!!

Fabulous Jacky, great use of the colours and papers and I just love your little dino. especially the smile on his face as he turns to look at the butterfly (or is it a dragonfly could be either) - fantastic.
Thanks for joining us at CC.
