Back to School

Good morning crafty friends, can't believe it's the middle of another week, aren't the days passing by so quick?!

Today, I'm here to tell you about the latest challenge over at The Crafty Addicts. This month our theme as always is 'Anything Goes' but you could follow our twist of 'Back to School'. Sponsoring us is the fabulous Polkadoodles. For my DT inspiration, I am using this little image called Student - School little Dude. He's so adorable!

On a 7x7 square card blank, I matt and layered blue linnen card with multicoloured striped paper. I placed the jotter page I created using Joycraft border die, after adding 3d letters and hand drawing apple. The image, I printed on to watercolour card, coloured then carefull cut out and placed as shown. I created the back to school slate board, on my pc, printed it out then added the 'wood' frame using coloured Kraft card. I used Tea Dye distress ink to darken and make more wood like! . I finished off with die cut numbers that I coloured and glittered with Stickles.
