I took advantage of last week's sale at Teddy Bo and bought a few new of these fantastic images - they are so great to colour I just couldn't resist. I chose this one because I wanted to enter the Passion for Promarkers challenge where the theme was dinosaurs although because of all the holidays (even though I had to work for most of them) I have got my days a bit confused so may actually be too late for the challenge ... doh! Anyway I enjoyed doing it and have made this one more masculine than my usual style, always good to have a few cards put by for the boys :o)
I was very excited to see this morning that my last Teddy Bo card has won last week's Teddy Bo challenge - I'm so pleased especially as I wasn't going to enter it until being given a nudge in that direction!
I coloured the image with Promarkers, of course, and used backing papers from K&Co Hopscotch, the tabs are punched with a Stampin Up punch, and the dots/circles are Candi from Craftworkcards - I bought a pack of these the other day at the craft show I went to and after standing looking at all the packs of different colours and trying to decide which ones to go for, I suddenly realised that the plain white ones could be any colour I wanted thanks to my trusty Promarkers! I die cut the circles and distressed the edge of the white one with ink and my scissors. I also inked the edges of the backing paper for a distressed look.
