Good Morning! I have some more Starving Artistamps/DoodleFactory cards for you today!

I've been having a ball playing with these new sets! I think cards should bring a smile to the faces of the recipients and these DF images make is so easy to do that. They're fun, colorful and guaranteed to make you smile!

There are three dinosaurs in the Prehistoric Set and this first card uses two of them. The card's dimensions are 5.5 x 5.5 inches, so you can gauge how big they are. Love the sentiments in the matching set! So fun! I'm kicking myself that I stamped the sentiment over that black dinosaur. It was my only sheet left of this Basic Grey Archaic paper and I couldn't avoid it! Grrr....or is that Rawr?! LOL

This second card uses the last dinosaur in the set. Pretend he's purple and doesn't he look like Dino?! Too cute! He'd make great birthday cards for kids wouldn't he? I wanted to make a fun card using him and some bright, colorful paper instead of the obvious (Basic Grey's Archaic). The paper is from K&Company's 'Cut 'N Paste' collection. I used a corner punch with it's guard off to create the large scalloped circle panel. Dino was colored with More Mustard. I added more layers of color to the shadows to create that darker, more intense color. To avoid bleed lines, I keep the brush moving as I add the layers of color and I re-wet everything within that area, even if there is no ink on the brush anymore. This is important otherwise you will leave bleed lines.
Hope you find this tip useful. :) Have a good one!
