This weeks free for all Friday challenge at SplitCoastStampers is making your background paper using stamps.
Since none of my boys will have just one teacher this year, I am going to let them card sit in the card stash until someone needs it.
SCS F4A231. Paper by Recollections. Stamp set used is Close to My Heart School Rules. Apples stamped in Tim Holtz inks: Shabby Shutters, Fired Brick, Festive Berries, Barn Door, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn, Crushed Olive, and Bundled Sage. Stems and leaves stamped in Frayed Burlap. Pencil done with markers applied to the stamp instead of an inkpad. Markers used: Black Soot, Antique Linen, Wild Honey, Pumice Stone, and Worn Lipstick.Sentiment stamped in Archival Jet Black. Ribbon is inked with Chipped Sapphire and embossing with Recollections Clear Detail Embossing powder.
This was a great way to spend a power outage (the embossing was afterwards).
