Jurassic Love step card


Hi and thank you for coming to take a look at my card for The Paper Shelter's blog challenge this week! 

The Paper Shelter want to see you "alter something or make a 3 folded card". I decided to make a 3 or more folded card and used Jurassic Love digi. They come in ink outline form and coloured and include a background designer paper too! I tried something different this week as I usually always colour my images but I thought I'd try printing the dinosaurs in colour and then create the background with my copics so it's still an original design. Grass is easy to do, just use all your different coloured green copics and stroke upwards. I inked the sky.

The Paper Shelter blog is also holding a DT call from the 10th - 20th February and they are the greatest, sweetest people to design for! I've been guest designing for a couple of months now and I would have loved to have stayed on if I didn't have so much on my plate right now.
