Back to Skool
Hello bloggers well Autumn feels like it is here to stay in the UK. So I have a back to school card today.
This card began as an A4 sheet of silver pearlescent cardstock, that I cut and scored to make a DL card blank. Next I cut a mat from some yellow pearlescent paper and randomly stamped it with two stamps from Crafter's Companion 'popcorn the bear kids school days' stamp set and black soot distress ink. I then heat set the ink with a heat tool and then adhered it to the card blank. Next I cut a strip of gingham paper and a longer strip of vintage floral paper and adhered them to the card at different angles. Using some more of the silver pearlescent cardstock I stamped my image using the same stamp set and staz-on black ink. I then stamped the same image onto some green and red papers, some brown handmade paper and kraft cardstock. I then cut out different elements from the stamped images so that I could use them to paper piece the topper image. The bear was made using handmade paper, the apple was the green paper with a bit of colouring from red ProMarker, his satchel was the kraft card and the blanket was the red card and a bit more colouring from a blue ProMarker. Once it was all piece together I adhered the topper to the card. Next I stamped my sentiment onto some silver pearlescent cardstock using staz-on black in and Clarity 'letterbox' stamp set. The sentiment was then adhered to the bottom of the card.
This card is being entered into the following challenges
