MyGrafico Monday Challenge! (MG13)

** I have TWO posts today so be sure to scroll down to see the sneak peek for Sherrod Studio!

It's time for another challenge from MyGrafico Challenges! This week, the challenge is to create a project with a dinosaur theme. We'd really LOVE it if you used images from MyGrafico, if possible. If you don't have any yet, check out the freebie section where they have a great selection of freebies!!!

Here's my sample:


This didn't come together quite as I had pictured in my head but I still think it turned out ok. And the dino is super cute! I found the background as an image on the internet (I did a Yahoo image search for volcano) and I resized it for a card front and printed it from my pc. The triceratops (aren't you impressed I know what kind of dino it is??) and the pond were both colored with Copics and the dino has a little texture on him achieved by dabbing the Copic colorless blender on him to lift some of the color away. The images are both from this set by MyGrafico:


This is the set you can win if you play along! Create your artwork using images from MyGrafico (if possible) and upload to your blog or other online gallery. When uploading to PCP, SCS, or MyGrafico.ning please use keyword/tag: MyGrafico or MG13. Then head over to the MyGrafico Challenge blog and leave a comment to let us know where we can see your artwork! A winner will be announced next Monday!

Oh and the inside of my card? Here's the sentiment:


Just right for my brother-in-law's upcoming Birthday...hehehe. Be sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team is sharing today! (List of DT in the right column).

Have a great day!
