It may appear, if you've been following this blog, that I haven't been doing any cardmaking, but in actuality, I've made quite a few... it's just the blogging I haven't had time to do. But today, I'll be catching up. I'll be doing it backwards though, so I can link to the challenges I used that haven't closed yet. Then I'll do post or two of all the ones I made and loved, but missed the challenge deadlines.

Here is my first chance to use my new Dino-Roar set. The sketch I used for this one has expired, but it was a fairly simple one, because I wanted this card to be clean and simple to showcase the watercoloring. I also used the ColourQ challenge, the SUO Happy Birthday them and There She Goes challenge for animal themes.

I ended up using 3 different watercoloring mediums. I used a Basic Grey watercolor crayon for the horns and toenails, Dusty Durango marker for the dino, and Ballet Blue and Old Olive pastels for the sky and grass.

Here are the colors... I substituted the Ballet Blue for Baja Breeze, because I was also doing a challenge (expired), to use stripes and polka dots, and didn't have any Baja prints on hand.
