Head on over to Suzanne Dean to see what she's sharing with you today!

And now a bit about my card...

I cut my background to 2 3/4 by 4 inches. All the images are from Dino-mite. I stamped the volcano using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored with Copics, starting with BV11.

Added C3.

Then added C5.

I used a sticky note to mask the top and sponged Memento Desert Sand ink.

Then I trimmed the sticky note to fit the volcano and sponged Memento Summer Sky ink.

Next, I stamped the tree on another piece of Pure Luxury white card stock, and began coloring with YG03.

Added YG07.

Added YG09.

Then a bit of shading with R02.

For the trunk, I started with E31.

Added E35.

Then added E25.

Then I stamped the dinosaur and colored the mouth with R02 and filled in the body with YR000.

Added YR12 to the body.

Added YR16.

Added YR18.

I did a little more shading with BV11. I added it to the mouth also. After coloring, I cut out both images.

I stamped the sentiment on the front of my card base then made some temporary pencil marks so I would know where to end my score lines, the used my Scor-Buddy to score an accent line.

I layered with Pure Luxury Pumpkin Spice. The card base is Turqouise Sea and sized 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 inches.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is wonderful!

Love all of your work. Especially your coloring techniques. I must tell you my husband recently started helping me color focal images and he has become obcessed with your technique. He will see a sunset and say that reminds me of Theresa Momber's work. It is too funny.
