HM sketch and color challenge Dino

Today is Saturday so that means another sketch challenge from Heather and guess what?!?! This week she added a color challenge to it! So of course I had to do both!LOL! I did have to change a couple of things though so lets just say its Shannified!LOL! The color challenge is real red, only orange, yo yo yellow, and so saffron. Well the saffron is where I had the problems. Saffron is actually my least fave yellow and I just couldnt get it to work. I added in wasabi for the trees instead. Sorry Heather! I love the sketch but I had to modify it to manily b/c I forgot the image was a circle image and my dino turned out so cute with his out of the box tail I just couldnt bring myself to do not use him! Its the first time Ive done out of the box cutting since I despise cutting! So since I used a rectangle image instead of a circle I had to move the brad placement. I also added in the sentiment. All the images used on my card are in the Dino day set from H & M. Brayden loves this card! He is a big dino fan and orange is his fave color. He wanted to know if this was his card so I think I will save it for his first day of Kindergarten!

I love how this turned out! Its my first time using this set and I will be using it again very soon! I added a little texture the dino by misting him and colored his spots and toes with yo yo yellow. I outlined him with my copic marker. For my corners I used my red marker and made my dots. Its hard to see in the pic but the real red layer has the footprints stamped tone on tone. Hope you like it as much as I do!

If you want to play along add the keywords HMsc4 for the sketch challenge or HMcc1 for the color challenge. Have a great day!
