Back to school...


What fun to dig through my Tim Holtz stamps and find just the right ones for this "learning" card.
The base card is kraft card stock with a layer of black card stock.
The main piece is watercolor paper and I started by stamping the verse from "Perspective"(2015) with StazOn jet black ink.
The rest of the stamping was done using "Blueprint Assortment-globe"(2012), "Type lower - letters and numbers"(2017, sadly they don't have them older) and "Curious Possibility-pen nibs"(2011) and Distress black soot ink.
I sponged the whole piece with Distress Oxide frayed burlap ink,  around the edge with walnut stain and in the verse section with wild honey.
Using my watercolor brush I pulled off the colors from the lettering.
To finish I taped the main piece to the black card stock.

Oh yes! This is fabulous. Love the sentiment and love the distressed vintage look. Very cleverly put together! Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this week.

I love the unusual. Your post on the sssmchallenge was out of the box and I had to stop over and find out more. Really inspired me to think about what I have and what I could use for some of what I am working on.
