Back to School

I had to start back to work this week after having my summer off. I am a secretary in our local school. It's always hard to go back after having about 2 1/2 months off. This year saw a lot of new faces at our school. We have 11 new teachers in our building. I decided to make them a card to welcome them.


This card was way to much to color and mass produce, so I cheated. I did one and then copied it on my printer. My ink went low so I had to do some touch up, but they were okay. Both of these stamps are Magnolia stamps: Mini Tilda with Pencils and Vintage Swedish Background. The first card was colored with copics. I then used copics to touch up the copies. The bottom of the mat is layered with Tim Holtz tissue tape. The sentiment is also Tim Holtz as is the die it is on (Shapeabilities Tag). It is inked with vintage photo distress ink. There is nothing fancy on the inside. I typed a message on the computer and cut it out with a shaped die.

Here are the challenges I am entering:
