The Biggest Wishes

Biggest Wishes - Dino Shaker Card
When I first saw this set, Critters from the Past, I wasn't sure if I was going to get it. I was never a huge Dinosaur fan. But these dinos are just so stinkin cute!! I am so very glad I did end up picking this up and I even went back for the dies because I have used it so much.

Yesterday & the day before I went out and got a couple sets of basic copic colors as well. I stamped a bunch of this dino out on some cheap 110 lb cardstock. I tend to have a heavy hand when coloring with my copics right now so I destroyed a sheet of Neenah solar white. I used B00 on the body and shaded in B23 & the darker dots I did with B05. The tealish dots I did BG15. None of these colors wanted to blend really well for me, but touching tips really helped me smooth it out.

Using my square dies I cut out the middle of a rectangle to make a Polaroid that was just big enough to fit a Shake It pouch. I filled this with the new sequins from Lawn Fawn sequin packs. I adore the flower sequins which I added around the pouch for added bling factor using glossy accents.

All this was layered onto some Into The Woods paper from Lawn Fawn that I still have (in fact I bought three 6x6 pads because I love it so much). I liked the tone on tone color of the green dots from this pack, they competed less with the frame.
