Dino Dud

*sigh* Sometimes, an idea just works out better in my head than on paper.  I had this funny idea of a birthday card with a T-Rex chasing a balloon, and I'm just not sure it comes across.

Plus I don't have any of the new balloon stuff that SU! has come out with, and that bitty balloon punch would have come in handy but instead I free-handed it and my balloon looks misshapen and wonky.  So I covered it in Iridescent Ice to distract :p

I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch:

And the balloon was for this week's Global Design Project theme challenge:

And finally, this week's Color Throwdown:

That splat looked more Tip Top Taupe to me than gray, so I went with Taupe and paired it with Real Red, Basic Black and of course white.

Anyway, it's time for me to go run some errands.  Ta-ta for now, y'all!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  No Bones About It
Ink:  Tip Top Taupe, Real Red, Basic Black, Versamark, Smoky Slate marker
Paper:  Tip Top Taupe, Thick Whisper White, Real Red DSP
Accessories:  Iridescent Ice EP

Actually when I saw this I thought the Dino had just lost his balloon and was headed after it......and then I read your your idea worked! Fun card!

Yes, the little boys I know would LOVE that.

Last night I looked out the kitchen window and there were 3 pre-school aged kids running around the yard next to parents/grandparents across the street. I hollered at Dad and said, "Would you look at all those little Rodriguez kids?!!!" Ha! Fun times.
