This is my first Challenge with Creative Craft World since being asked to join the DT, this time the challenge is Easel Cards and we are sponsered by ...........Stitchy & Cowgirl Up Stamps...........from stitchy bear stamps  and the winner will receive 2 products of choice from each creator.Stitchy Bear Stamps. I have used the digi stamp Dino from stitchy Stamps.
On this first card I have used Basic Grey Archaic papers which have all been distressed along the edges with my scissors and then inked with some distress ink. I have run the green paper through the cuttlebug with the mesh embossing folder as I thought it looked a bit like dinosaur scales.
I have coloured Dino with my promarkers creating his spots using the blender pen. He is mounted on some foam pads, the paper behind him has been coloured with distressed ink and then the edges have been covered with some distressed stickles. The string and button are from my stash, card candy from Craftwork Cards and the sentiment is from Papermania I have coloured it with distress ink to match the rest of the card.



I have seen some different shaped easel cards on other blogs so thought I would have a go at one, so I came up with this trianglar one. I have again used Basic Grey papers this time from the Cupcake range. The card candy is from Craftwork cards adn the yellow has been coloured with a promarker to match. The sentiment is another Papermania one.
Dino is coloured again with promarkers and mounted onto some circles cut with nesties. The orange circle has been embossed with the mesh folder.
We would love you to join in with our challenge here
