Back to School Challenge....
Today the Paper Nest design team is showcasing their "Back to School" challenge over on their challenge blog. I was asked to join in and use the "teacher" image. Isn't it cute? Reminds me of my little girl (not so little anymore... she's entering middle school at the end of this month) playing school with her stuffed friends. LOL But.. what's even better than a challenge... You can get this adorable for FREE!!! Yep, that's right... hurry over to the store and grab her up.. HERE!
I colored my image with Copic markers and did a little "dotting" technique on the sweet bear. If you click on my photo you can blow it up and see it a bit better. I love adding texture like this.. it's quick and easy to do. Just use a couple colors and blend with a lighter color.
I did a bit distressing on the edges and added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in "Vintage Photo". The paper pack I used, Simple Stories, "Vintage Bliss", was perfect for a school themed card. I love the soft colors yet vintaged look.
A few flowers and pearls and a quick label tab with a clip finish off my card.
Be sure to stop by the Paper Nest Challenge Blog and join in the fun! The challenge runs through the 16th of August. The winner will receive a fabulous scrapbook bundle from the store!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a fabulous time creating your "back to school" card! *HUGS*
