Stamp N Plus Back to School Challenge

It's a new month and that means a new challenge at Stamp N Plus Scrap N. The theme this month is Back to School. In order to qualify for Stamp N Plus  prizes, you must use a Stamp N Plus stamp on your entry.

I used two stamps on my entry this month. The first is called Lunchtime Name Tag and comes from the Patti's Kids category (X2544). The second stamp is the cute crayon (L661) and is actually an office stamp with the word "received" in the middle. I replaced that word with an oval that says the crayon colour. I printed the words from the computer, stamped an extra crayon, and cut out the oval to trace around the words. All of the images were coloured with my Prismacolor pencils, using OMS to blend. The images were also fussy cut and mounted on black cardstock to help them stand out against a busy background.

The background paper is older paper from my stash. The hand drawn chalkboard was created from black and kraft cardstock. The kraft was coloured with Prismas but not blended to create the look of wood. The lettering on the board is hand done. A small star button threaded with baker's twine accents the corner. The opposite corner has a chipboard apple from my stash. A small baker's twine bow repeats the twine on the button.

Just a fun little card to wish everyone who is heading back to school a wonderful year! Be sure to check out the cards made by the rest of the DT for this Stamp N Plus challenge. They are sure to provide lots of inspiration for this theme. Come and play along with us. It's always fun to see what you create. Thanks for visiting.

Life is good; so is art.
