Another Dinosaur!

I do like Dustin Pike's dinosaurs and this challenge was no exception! The Dare U 2 Digi Stamp challenge is to use a digi image and also:
Punched Shapes or Die Cuts

The image is Dustin Pike coloured with watercolour pencils and I've chalked the background to make it less white. The yellow and orange papers are from It's Funky Too - the orange paper and the green have been textured with a Fiskars texture plate (frantic minutes rubbing the image on!) and then I've pulled an ink pad across the top so that the stones stand out more.

The sentiment was a freebie Papermania stamp set from a magazine a while ago and I've also inked this to tone it down a little. The die cuts are the bones from a Sizzlit dog set. And although I know that this dinosaur is a herbivore, well, I didn't have any die cuts or punches of leaves, so I've had to go with the bones. Just pretend you don't know that!
