I've been a bit thin on the ground with postings this week but I've been working on some other non-card related bits - I need to get a few things done before I head back to the UK for a visit again!
Anyway, as Friday has arrived, it means a new challenge over at The Outlawz for the Copics/Promarkers group and this week our theme is, as the post title says - 'Back to School'. I know that there's still a few weeks to go until term starts in the UK but they start a whole lot sooner over here in the States. My niece will be starting 'big' school at the end of September when she'll be 5 - I'm not sure if she's excited or not....... I can't wait to get a photo of her with her new school uniform on :)
Still, enough waffle - I made a card that I hope will appeal to all ages as there are plenty of adults who bravely head out to continue their education, plus I thought it would also be a good thank you teacher card as well.
I found the image by doing a Google image search for schoolbooks; it's actually a colouring book page and one of my fellow DT members (thanks Jo!), tells me it's from Elizabeth Dulemba. I coloured it with Copics and I also did the splodgy background by dripping some of the copics blender and a few drops of the refills in the same colours as the books. The background is done with a rubber stamp from http://www.blockheadstamps.com/ and I added some ribbon and craft tape - the opening was cut using my Cameo and I popped the image up with some foam dots.
I would like to put this card into the following 'Back to School' challenges -
Thanks for popping in :)
