Quick post today. Here's my card for Laurie's Paper Dolls Challenge. Her challenge is for us to make a project using a "school time" theme.
With four kids, I can always use a card for a teacher. This is what I made.
I made the owl with the owl punch from Stampin' Up. I also tried Dawn McVey's idea of stamping the ruler image from It's Official onto Summer Sunrise ribbon. If you want to give this a try, use Staz On ink. When I tried dye and pigment inks, they bled.
I impressed the black panel and the yellow scallop rectangle with the Book Print plate. I distressed the black panel with my fingernails. To stamp "I Love School", I only inked the first words on the background stamp.
One of the reasons I bought the Pocket die is to be able to put little notes in it. In this case, my daughter can write a short note for her teacher on it.
Well, that's it for now. Thanks for stopping by!
