Land Before Time

Oh I love this film... I really took to little Ducky, she was so cute. So, the theme over at the Passion for Promarkers Challenge blog this week, Prehistoric, was just perfect for me to doodle my way to a dinosaur landscape! The other great thing about it is the fact that it fits in with the I Love Promarkers challenge to create your own background (No paper allowed!)

I do have another card to show you that I made yesterday but I'll upload that one tomorrow.

This is my doodly card.


I started by doodling the dinosaurs, they took ages to get right, and I'm still not too happy with little Dino, I think he looks a bit like Zippy from Rainbow! Haha.


Still, I think they're okay as I'm a bit out of touch with my doodles and sketching as I haven't done any for quite a while. But the funniest thing was that I wasn't totally happy with my rainbow (I was talking about that on Tuesday at Craft Class!) and actually, now it's in place on the card, it doesn't look too bad. I've layered it behind a piece of card that I cut an aperture in.

I don't know if you can tell too well, but I added a bit of texture onto my dinosaurs with the blender pen - perfect for this type of effect.

I will probably be sat making cards, taking it easy and uploading lots over the next week or so, as I have torn the ligaments in the bottom of my foot after my 'incident' yesterday and have been told by the hospital to take it easy and keep off my foot for the next 6 to 8 weeks.. yeah right!! My solution?? Well. The computer chair is acting as a wheely chair at the moment and crawling round on all fours is working fantastic!

Whatever you're upto, enjoy it! Tomorrow I'll be sat in front of the TV watching Will's and Kate's Royal Wedding. Such pomp and ceremony and I love it!

See ya soon!
