Dinoroar all the way!!

I don't have much time now a days with 2 small children and a busy home life, so once again I have created a card within half an hour for a party my son went to today. I really need to sit down for half a day and create a whole lot of cards for these last minute moments.

This time I was inspired by Paula Dobsons wonderful card creations with her Sponging, masking techniques and her Sepia Silhouette card. I tried it with the stamp set Dinoroar (which I love) and started trying to make the sponging look like hills, but after a while got too excited with this technique and realised it looked like a mix of clouds and hills.

I found by sponging Lucky Limeade with Island Indigo it created this fantastic green that changed to various colors as I kept applying in different areas.

I then stamped the Dinoroar images (RRP $45.95 Clear or $57.95 wood mounted) directly on the card stock with Staz On, then onto a sheet of Confetti White card stock, water colored then cut them out, and lay them on with Dimensionals to give the 3-D effect.


  1. What a lovely card. sponging looks great.

  2. Awesome sponging - those hills look great!!!

  3. Wow, Callena! I totally love the background effect you have achieved by mixing those two colours. It is absolutely stunning! This stamp set is on my wishlist. The characters are so cute!

  4. Callena I love your card! I have recently bought this set, but have only drooled over it so far - haven't tried making anything yet and would probably have struggled to make anything decent, you've given me the inspiration I need! That sponged background is just perfect. How clever are you?!
