Eric and Chrissy Go Prehistoric

Yea, today I can finally share my favorite project so far with the new CC Designs Stamps that are being releases tomorrow night. This set is called Go Prehistoric and is the first set to feature Eric and Chrissy. First of all these images are ADORABLE!!! I have been waiting for the perfect dinosaur stamp set for a long time and this is it! Not to mention that Eric and Chrissy are just too stinkin' cute.

My first project with this set was a door sign for my dino-addicted son. He has already made a request for Christine to draw him a "sharp-teeth and a spike tail dinosaur".
So anyway, this sign is made on a wooden slat. I found them at a local craft store, 6 in a package for just a couple of dollars. They measure about 3 x 7.
I used various color inks and just smooshed (its a technical term, LOL) the ink pads right across the board. While the inks were still a bit wet I used a cloth to really blend them in together. It was all kind of random actually, I just tried to keep a nice clean horizon line.
All of the images where stamped, colored with Prismas and cut out. Some were mounted with 3-D tape others were glued right to the board. I used some Glossy Accents on the lava coming from the volcano to give it a hot, lava look. I drilled two holes and used some ribbon as a hanger. The letters were inked and then sponged around the edges for some detail.
Super easy! And if you have a dino-addicted girl it would be so easy to just change to colors to a more girl-like palette.
I will be back in a bit with a card I made with this set. I have a little project from yesterday's Christmas Scenery set peak to fit in as well. So much to show you so little time.
Don't forget these stamps will be available Tuesday night at 10:00 at All That Scraps. And there will be a release party starting at 8:00 in the forum. Oh and go to the ATS blog for a chance to win this set and see what the DT has done with it and all of the other new sets. SO CUTE!!
