I Alpha'd the Digital Image so that background shows through and made the backing to look like a Chalkboard. Ideally I would have liked to put a wooden floor for poor Seth to rest on but it didn't work out with outlines looking all wrong. I could have fixed this but it would have taken me hours and I didn't have the patience yesterday !!! The sentiment and equation were made on computer with Chalkdust Font. Buttons from stash.
The formulas and book were from Microsoft Office Clip Art and they have lots of Back to School images which is fab! The book was blue though, so changed it to purple. The gorgeous pinstripe background paper is from Die Cuts With a View 'Latte' Stack. The card looked unbalanced so I added some 'masculine gems' LOL. They are purple - so think I can get away with it! Kids love sparkle too! Well that's my excuse!
Promarkers: Pastel Blue, Lilac, Lavender, Tan
Copics: E00, E02, G82, G85, R24, E53
Prismacolor Pencils for Shading
I would like to say a big thank you for all your lovely comments on my Steampunk Sally card - I really do appreciate them :-)) I was SO surprised and chuffed that it won this week's 'Pretty in Print' contest at One Stitch at a Time, so it should be in Papercraft Essentials Magazine in October. I really enjoyed doing the Steampunk card and think I could really get into them!!!
Raining again! :-(( which is shame for people at Summer Fairs and BBQs. I am staying in nice and warm and hopefully going to have a relaxing evening. Going to have Hawaiian Pizza and watch a film. Might watch Jane Eyre!! :-))
