Dinosaur Easter

Lots of birthdays this month. It was my husbands on the weekend and it’s my grandson’s 4th birthday today. When given this card he asked me what sort of dinosaurs they were. “Well the big one is a tyrannosaurus rex I’m sure”. “No, it’s not!” came the quick response. “They don’t have spines down their back.” So what do I know? Maybe it’s a girl one? See, look at all the glitter…

As usual I was making it at the last minute. I had already slapped the first sticker on before realising how much white was showing around each dinosaur. The stickers are made of paper and beautifully embossed (and glittered) so I ended up using some green watercolour around them to better blend them into the background. The background is alcohol ink, so luckily didn’t have to be too careful with my painting. Not a great job, but at least not the stark white of before (see right). Might have to fussy-cut out the remaining stickers.
