To start my journey, I created this dinosaur tag using The Alley Way Stamps, Lava You set and Stomper set. I just love dinosaurs.
To choose the colors for the dinosaur, I looked at the "red" set of Spectrum Noir. When you look at the set, the numbers are in groups of three, and each set of three is meant to work together. I wanted this guy to be a darker red, so I chose the three colors dark red set: DR1, DR5, DR7. I wanted to shade his backside to be darkest.
I like to work with the lightest color first, then go to the darkest and down for blending. I love this little guy.
I decided to use ribbon as a divider here between the pattern and the image. I will attach string or ribbon to the tag to adhere to the birthday gift.
