Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Distress It Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Back To School 

The stores are full of back to school stationary but a notebook, diary or even a bookmark is so much nicer when it is handmade with love! Why not make a little card to pop into a child’s lunchbox too. So many things that we can make! We will be looking forward to seeing what you decide to create!

We are showcasing some fabulous Penny Black Productsthis week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used!

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store!

I knew I had to use the School Bus Messages & Encouraging Animals as soon as I saw this weeks them.

I did some masking and picked the cat and bear from the stamp set, I just love that bear image and the cat seemed perfect for the theme. 

I coloured everything with my Spectrum Noir markers….I haven’t used these for ALONG time and need to practice a bit more, but it was nice to use them again as I have got so caught up with pencils & water colours.

Once I had coloured the bus and animals I used my markers to create a very basic scene and stamped the sentiment, which is actually two sentiments put together from the School Bus Messages Set. I added some white gel pen detail when done and couldn’t resist adding some glossy accents as shown below.

I finished the card off by adhered it with foam tape to a A2 top folding notecard.

  1. ACK! I’m smiling allll over my face int seeing your two sweet critters heading off to school in that fabulous yellow bus! Simple fabulous! I’m impressed with your Spectrum Noir colouring. I have a handful and just can’t figure them out…the lighter colour lifts the darker, resulting in pretty much no shading. More practice required (or something…). Anyway, your card is 110% charming!

    1. Thanks so much Carol. It’s a learning curve with alcohol markers. I was on spectrum Noir design team for years so was lucky to have learnt plenty. If you ever need any help just shout x
