Back to School

School is in session in most places.  We've been back at school since the first week of August.  For this card, the blackboard is a free digital stamp from KLM Digi Stamps and the little boy perched on top is by CC Designs Take A Seat Sugarplums set.  Everything is colored with Copics.

I colored and then cut out each design and then adhered them to my card base.  It took longer than I initially thought to color the blackboard because there are so many layers of C4 and C6, each making the image slightly darker.  But I like the end result - it looks like a blackboard to me (although I think a lot of schools now use white dry erase boards - oh well). 

This week's challenge at Stamp Something weekly challenge blog is back to school.  Go on over, there's still time to play.

Very fun back to school card, and the work on the blackboard was totally worthwhile, it looks great. Can't believe school is in session so early where you are! Here we only go back after labour day--this coming Tuesday...
Enjoy your weekend!
