Go Prehistoric x3

This is my third week as the Guest Designer over at All That Scraps. I loved Eric and Chrissy Go Prehistoric from the minute I opened the package. So today I have 3 cards made with that set but also using at least one other CC Designs set.

This card uses the dino image from Go Prehistoric and the balloons and party hat from Froggy and Friends. I used a bit of embroidery floss to tie the balloons to his tail. I also combined sentiments from both sets to create my "have a dino-mite Birthday!" greeting.

This next card was in my brain for a while before I was finally able to drag it out. This is the volcano image from Go Prehistoric and Lucky from Wintertime Fun. There is a ton of glitter on this baby. I also used some puff paint on the "mountains" but being impatient as I am I didn't allow enough time for it to dry and I smooshed it nearly flat. Oops!

And this last card uses 3 sets from CC Designs. The palm tree is from Go Prehistoric, the Relax and Unwind saying is from My Rubber Ducky and the monkey in the tube is from Summertime Fun. I was going for the "wish you were here postcard" kind of look instead I got "the girl has now idea how to use watercolors look". LOL! This was my first attempt as coloring with watercolor pencils and Peerless watercolors. It was fun, I just really need more practice, clearly.

But back to my original point... the palm tree goes perfectly with the Summertime Fun set.

Thanks for checking in today. Don't forget there is a new challenge every Wednesday in the ATS forum. Take part in any of the challenges and you could be next month's Guest Designer.
