Today's card is from last Wednesday when the challenge was posted for the Wed Stamp Club on the MFT blog.
I am just now getting to to post this card & I am giving it to my daughter's student teacher tomorrow!! YAY!!! :) :) :)
She taught them a plants/seeds unit for her student teaching, so I thought this PI Little Gardener by MFT would be perfect for her. She will be moving on to other classrooms & we are "rooting for her" to get a good job when she graduates!
Here's the sketch from the Wednesday Stamp Club
and a link to the page
I added shading with General's pastel chalk pencils to add more depth.
I used patterned paper from: DCWV Sunday Afternoon &
My Mind's Eye The Sweetest Thing
Card stock: Hollyhock (CTMH)
Pool Party (SU!)
I used the Roses & Leaves die-namics from MFT to die cut a flower from my patterned paper.
I added a yellow epoxy dot from teresa collins to the center for some added color.
I wrapped the card with some hemp cord and layered all of my pieces together.
At the bottom of the card, I used the wonky scallop border from MFT & for the sentiment I used a piece from die-namics Blueprints 2 w/ the cut & re-cut method until it was the length that I wanted.
The sentiment "rooting for you" comes with PI Little Gardener and I used kraft ink from MFT.
I was pretty happy with how it turned out, except for the hair. I tried to make it a little darker here and there to be more like my daughter, but I get carried away & covered most of her highlights.
Ah, well ~~~ live & learn!!
Thanks for looking!!
:) :) :) :)
Have a great day!!
