Summer break card for WSC495

School break card for WSC495.

Hello again! I’m back with a card for WSC495. After these past three months, I have a new appreciation for teachers. Home schooling is so difficult! The kids and I were counting the days until summer break. It’s finally here and I felt like celebrating with a little school themed card…

This week’s sketch is very versatile… you can turn those three horizontal lines into sentiments, waves, tree branches… or in my case, pencils!

I did some partial stamping with one of the pencils from the BB Class Act stamp set and completed the lines with a 0,3 fine tip black pigment pen.

Then I colored them with Copic markers and added them to my A2 top fold card base, covered with a sheet of patterned paper from the Positively Peppy Paper Pad. Thanks to all those cool expressions, I didn’t need any additional sentiments and could concentrate on the main image.

I stamped the pile of books slightly tilted to the left, on a 2 1/2″ x 5″ (6,4cm x 12,7cm) piece of Copic friendly card stock. Then I masked the last one with some washi tape and finally stamped the girl. The books are a little bit large for her, but in my mind totally symbolic of the burden that my 12 year old daughter has been carrying this past school year.

Next, I colored the image with the following Copic markers; E000, E04, E11, E21, E57, E55, E53, E51, C5, C4, C3, C00, R59, R39, R35, W10, W7, W5, W3, G46, G43 and G40.

Once I was done, I adhered the panel to my card base with some fun foam and scor tape. As a last touch, I added some matching enamel dots.
