Dino Decoupage Card

This week at Passion for Promarkers, the challenge theme is ‘pre-historic’ [Week #97]. For some reason, once I’d found my image, the need to decoupage it seemed overwhelming! I’m really pleased with the results. I also experimented with colour choice and used only ProMarkers with the middle digit 2 or 3 – this helps keeps the tones complementary. Please let me know what you think.

UPDATE: I was in the top five for the challenge 🙂

Now for the finer details. The image was a freebie digistamp download from Dustin Pike’s blog. I arranged six to an A4 page in my word processor before laser printing to my favourite Ryman coated cardstock.

Pens used:
Dino: Marsh Green/Olive Green; Vanilla/Oatmeal/Sandstone
Blues: Cool Aqua/Duck Egg
Purples: Lilac/Amethyst
Pinks: Pink Carnation/Rose Pink
Yellow: Tulip Yellow

   

These were the layers I used for the decoupage. The outlining in the lower layers helps hide any edges that may peek from lower layers, without wasting ink on areas that won’t be seen in the final card. The final image is the base layer onto which the top layers were mounted. It’s this that was attached to the final card.

The background paper was from a magazine 6×6 paper pack give-away of Friends Forever themed papers.

The silver metallic strip is the Letraset Hobbyline 1/16 thickness and works just like peel-off strips but on a much more economical roll.
