School Dreams

We hope you join us at INCY WINCY for this fortnight's challenge.  The theme is Back To School/Children.  See what the DT have been up to, and enter your work here:  incywincydesigns





Thanks to Little Blue Button Stamps for this image, get it here:  TEACHER CHARLIE.


Image: Little Blue Button Stamps
Coloured with Copics
Stencil: Tim Holtz
Border punch: Fiskars
Sentiment Stamp: Newtons Nook
Also Patterned paper, White Pigment Pen, gem, Distress Inks.
The little flower is a drop out from a diecut.


I copied the image into Word and enlarged it.  I printed it onto white card and cut it vertically to her head, then around her on the right side only, trimming the bottom to make it the right size for the card.  I also printed the image onto printer paper, cut it out and used it as a mask to stencil the left hand side of the image.  The patterned paper is a very large number page which I've had for a long time and never used, but was so suitable for this project.  Another piece of white card is punched, cut to shape and lightly inked, before stamping the sentiment.

What a great card Carol - love how you have only partially cut the image and used the stencil for a contrasting background to the paper
