Clean & Simple sketch #101 (I used it before here), after that I rummaged my stash of scraps and found those I used to make last year´s first day of school card too, but I still like them a lot so I decided to use them again. Paper and row of pencils are part of a blog train I followed last year (couldn´t find the files to give credit of them). And slowly the sketch turned into a pencil box (not my original idea at all!!). Took a strip of craft paper and cut with edge scissors, I added some rhinestones to glitter it up a bit and hand wrote back to school! with gel pen. To make the shadows around the box and pencils I used my dark brown make up that I rarely use on me because is too dark for my skin... love the effect here.
Michelle Perkett (her Etsy shop here) that I colored with colored pencils (and only blend them on the skin parts with mineral oil), I cut Mary and place her on the card with foam tape, to finish it I added a rhinestone on her bow.
Pretty simple but I like the result, hope you like it too! I´m participating at:
