Welcome back for another...
This weeks challenge is: Back to School!
So this is what I made, which I hope you like! I'd love you to leave me a comment below.
I started by making myself a template of an apple, stalk and leaves. I drew it onto scrap paper, cut it out and marked it 'template' so I didn't throw it away so I have it for always. I then traced around the template onto a card blank, overhanging part of the apple over the scored section so when I cut it out it would still be a folded card.
I then covered the apple shaped card blank with red paper. I coloured the leaves and stalk using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink pads. I scored down the centre of leaves, used foam pads and attached to front of card. I then glued the stalk to inside of card front.
I tied a bow from organza ribbon, then added a button and tied the two together with twine, securing with a bow at the front.
I stamped and embossed 'thanks teacher' using WOW! Embossing Powder : Bright White onto black card stock, trim to size and attach to apple. I cut the stamp wording into individual words so I could create my own sentiment 'you + me = awesome!' Add stamped and coloured crayons beneath sentiment.
I then stamped and coloured the cute owl from Pink and Main Owl Nerds stamp set adding glossy accents to the Owl's glasses.
Can't wait to see what you make too! Good Luck you could win $50 to spend at SSS on-line!
See you next week for a brand new challenge!
