From a sketch...

Kelly made this lovely card which is the sketch inspiration for the 66th CAS challenge on SCS. I also had this month's A muse Lounge Challenge in mind when I made my card.

Stamps: A muse (backpack, school time)

Ink: Palette hybrid noir & moulin rouge
Paper: A muse (school lined cardstock), SU (very vanilla)
Accessories: copics, pop dots, corner chomper

I stamped the backpacks repeatedly on a strip of paper, then coloured them with my copics in bright primary colours. The alphabet line from A muse's School Time clear set made a perfect border underneath the main image. I hand cut a heart because I did not have a punch or a die in the exact shape/size appropriate for this card (GASP!!). I stamped the sentiment from the same clear set and sponged the edges of the heart in red. I decided to chomp off the corners of my card at the last minute as I seemed to fit with the roundness of the heart.

Hope you like it! It is just about time for teachers' thank you cards...hope you feel inspired to join these challenges and make some of your own!
