Dino-mite

This adorable little dinosaur just melts my heart! I had to have him as soon as I saw him. I can't wait to use him more and am pretty sue he is going to look amazing in pretty much every colour. For this card I used the spectrum noir illustrators AG3, AG2, AG1 to colour him in :D
I feel like he is so cute he doesn't need much else around him but just the plain card looked a bit too empty so I added some Nuvo drops. The main dino and the sentiment are from Heffy Doodle Dino-mite stamp set and I stamped them in Memento tuxedo black ink.

I am so in love with Heffy Doodle

Hi everyone,
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my little blog. I had to take a break from crafting for a bit as life got a bit manic but now I am back and ready to go again :)
I hope you are all well and enjoyed the weekend as much as I did.
I was lucky enough to get some proper crafting time this weekend. In fact my mum even came soon to join me and we crafted for most of the day. It was heaven!

I recently found this super cute company called Heffy Doodle. If you haven't seen them yet you are just about to and there will be plenty more to come on my blog as I am more than a little addicted to them already. You can get your hands on a range of their stamps, dies and stencils in my online shop so I will add links to everything I have used to make these cards in case you want to grab them.

Ok enough talking time for the cards.........

This card was the first one of this set I made using the Wingman stamp set. I am just as nutty about parrots as I am about frogs so I NEEDED this set as soon as I saw it!
I have used the Heffy doodle UnbeLEAFable stencil and shabby shutters distress ink to make the leaf print in the background. The sentiment and main stamp are from the Wingman stamp set and then I coloured him and his perch with the following spectrum noir illustrator markers:
Perch: TN7, EB2 and IG3
Beak:GY3, CT4
Body: TB4, TB3, TB1

For that extra little something I added some Lemon twist glossy accents scattered around.

This second card I wanted to make the same stamp look a little different. So this time I used the other stamps and made a background by stamping them randomly all over it in memento tuxedo black.
Stamped the sentiment which is again also in the Wingman stamp set and layered it up on some black card. The main parrot I coloured using Lemon twist glossy accents for its beak,
and then a mix of Nuvo glitter drops to give its feathers some sparkle. I popped it up from the card using some foam pads and then coloured the perch with spectrum noir illustrators TN7 and EB2.
