School Days.

Good morning everyone...and welcome to a new challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge is that time of year for a lot of children and some our new theme is

School Days...

Our new challenge is hosted by the lovely Tammy....and we are sponsored by Sweet Lilac Flowers and Fresh Brewed Designs...

I do hope you feel inspired and join in....

Here is what I came up with...

I began by stamping those wonderful Clarity owls.....

Cut them out and added some colour with my Spectrum Noir Pencils..

My background paper is from a favourite company of mine...Graphic 45

I have noticed that the chalk board effect is very popular at the I had a play and created my own effect using VersaMark ink and Perfect Pearls...

Then it was time to assemble all the bits, plus some Sweet Lilac Flowers and leaves...Oh and a little piece of chalk...

A few finishing touches....glossy accents on the eyes...and job done...

Oh look at those owls....remind you of anyone????

I do hope that you pop over to the Fussy and Fancy blog and have a look at the samples from my fellow DT members....very inspirational...

Better still enter a card.......

Must go...another busy day....and workshops at C.J.Cardcraft in Stockport tomorrow...

Enjoy your day....and see you soon...

Much love...

Jo. xxxx
