School's in Session...

So this is the week that the big yellow buses are back on the road as students return to school. In honour of the occasion, I've made a little something from the Sushi Dolls Special August Release. Whether you're a sweet little newbie headed to your very first class ever, or an old coot like me trying to add a few more credits to get that all important degree, here's a little encouragement...

This very (deceptively) simple card took quite some time to create. Somehow, for me, CAS just translates into forever and a day, which is seriously funny since I can't seem to multiple layer to save my life. But I digress...

My dear Mrs. Sherwyn was coloured with Touch Twin Brush Markers. Once she was completely dry, I went back in with my B143 marker just over the lens of the glasses to give the suggestion of a tint and differentiate that area from the rest of her face. I fussy cut her out and adhered her to the edge of a mini chalkboard from an old Simon Says Stamp Card Kit, stuck two layers of pop dots to her head and pencil, and added it all to an embossed piece of cardstock.

If you're a Touch Twin user, here are the colour combos I used for this project:

Mrs. Sherwyn and the rest of the special Sushi Dolls release for back to school are available on Susi's site. Why not create a pick-me-up for someone's lunch box today using one of these adorable images?

Supplies Used:



Hugs and Kisses.
