Teacher Card

I sortof missed the back-to-school crafting (and I am really not quite ready for the fall holidays) BUT I am using this period to get excited about making some teacher thank-yous for later use.  I combined several challenges to make this card.

I colored the image with alcohol markers and then cut the cardstock with a tag die.  I also cut a scrap of red cardstock with the same die and trimmed it out to create a sort of border.  


The papers are all scraps and I was able to get just enough to follow a sketch.  In the end, I tilted the tag a bit, just because it felt right at the time.  

Supplies: Stampendous School for Changito stamp set, Versafine and Memento Black inks, Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, Tim Holtz tag dies, My Mind's Eye Summer Fresh 6x6 paper pad, other cardstocks from my stash.

I would love to enter these challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketches #419
The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge
Word Art Wednesday  - Anything Goes
SimonSaysStamp Monday Challenge - Stamp It


I truly appreciate your visit today and especially to those of you that follow my blog and/or left a comment today.  Thank you for your time!

I love this and I think it's a great idea to make your teacher thank yous while there's 'back to school' inspiration around. Actually, I make very few back-to-school cards but lots of school thank yous - there are so many teachers, teaching assistants, playleaders to thank! I love the way you've coloured that monkey image, the bright palette and the way you mounted it on a plain red tag.
