Good morning! How's Thursday treatin' ya so far? I hope the answer to that question is very well. Today I have a card to share that I made for The Stamping Boutique Back To School Blog Hop. I was in Chicago at the time with very limited internet access, so I asked Amanda if I could sit this hop out, rather than cause an interruption in the hop in case my card didn't post, and I wasn't in a place where I could check on it. She was so sweet, and allowed me to bow out gracefully, but I still want to share my card with you, so here ya go...
This was made with the adorable Back to School Audrey image from The Stamping Boutique, and colored with Copic markers. It's hard to see in the picture, but I added some Crystal Effects to her glasses, which make them look like the real thing. Background paper for this one was really tough for me, because I don't have much back to school type paper in my stash. I did find this Daisy D paper in primary colors, which worked very well. I punched the chalk board oval with my SU wide oval punch, and cut the letters with my Cricut. I added polka dots to Audrey's pinafore and scarf with my white gel pen, and finished off this card with the wide striped grosgrain ribbon from Stampin' Up!. I love that stuff, and now it comes in so many more colors than it once did!! I know I'm going to have to have them all! Be sure to check out all the great back to school images that Tracey has drawn up at The Stamping Boutique. They are so cute, and the kids will be back to school in the blink of an eye. Wouldn't they light up to find one of these in their notebook on that first day back? I know I would!!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you've found a little inspiration while you were here, and until the next time... HAPPY STAMPING!!
