Dino-mite Gift Tag!!

Giving gifts is always a fun thing and I think wrapping them can even be more fun. I love to change things up a little. With every Father's Day there is always a gift ready to be given and this time I wanted to add a funky cool tag. I found some printable bookplates at www.ActivityVillage.co.uk and used the Paint program to edit the file. Once that was done, I than loaded the file into my word processing program and increased the size. Then it was printed on coloured cardstock and paper pieced together. This is a great resouce for printables and especially for the homeschooling family.  Such cool graphics and so fun!

This dinosaur was shaded with STAEDTLER watercolour pencils. Shading was added beneath the legs & arms to provide more depth and dimension.  Hero Arts Mini Letters were used to stamp Dinomite Dad on the leg of the dinosaur. Ranger white gel pen was used to add white highlights in various places and to add some whimsy.

This Dinosaur tag is being submitted to the following challenges:
All Sorts Challenge: #159 - Paper Piecing 
Crafts 4 Eternity: R#76 - Dashing Dads
Wags'n Whiskers: #81 - Paper Piecing

Thanks for dropping by today. I trust that you are enjoying the Dads, and special father figures in your lives today. These are such important people and deserve to be loved on in a big way. Trusting that the weather is great in your area and that great memories are being created. Until next time.

Hugs & Blessings

Aww, that dinosaur is too darn cute, Dana! And I am truly blown away by your coloring. I thought it had glossy accents at first since it had a shiny look, but after reading your post, it is all due to your incredible talent. Well done! :) Hope you're doing a whole lot better. Take care! xo

Oh, Activity Village is such a great site! We don't homeschool but I do keep the kids going over the summers, and that's one of my stops.
Love the amazing colouring on that dino - incredible how the white just makes it shine!

Wonderful tag idea! I agree with Nona, I thought there was Glossy Accents on there. I'm sure there was one happy daddy!
