Wild Thing

Good morning everyone! I want to share this seriously cute card I made the other day, using the Wild Thing stamp set from My Favorite Things. You know, 6 months ago if I had been asked to make a card for a little boy I would have had a really hard time doing so. I think I had one stamp that I could've used. Today, with all the new designs coming out with the little boy in mind, I'm happy to say I'm very well prepared!
This little guy is just so stinkin' cute, I had to add the set to my collection. I immediately thought of this paper from My Mind's Eye. The zig zag stripes reminded me of reptiles, for some reason, LOL.

So I paper pieced the dino suit, did a bit of Gray shading with Copics, and he's as scary cute as can be. Of course, for the card background I knew I had to use the Cuttlebug Mosaic folder, and emboss the whole thing with clear EP. (Thanks to the faux leather wallet tutorial on SCS). Looks just like T-Rex skin!

Hope you like it, thanks for visiting!
