Back to school for us is college and Grad school. My daughter Katie is in an 11 month Master's of Education program that is very intense- so I made this card for her.
The image I used is from Rogue Redhead Stamps - HERE is the link to the Blog, which in turn has a link to the stamps. I water colored the image trying something new- I used the distress inks I used on the background, with a few touches of Prismacolor pencils added in (like for the skin....). I enjoyed trying this and may give it a go another time. The background is done with a Technique Junkies background called Back to Back-using Rogue Redhead stamps and a mosiac stamp from Starving Artistamps.
The inks I used are: Faded Jeans, Shabby Shutters and Brushed Corduroy. I misted the background with a little water and srayed it with Pearl Glimmer Mist. The bottle cap is from Archivers- they come in a package already flattened...... The grad cap was colored with Copics and Stardust Gel Pen and is from MSE!
