Teacher's Thank You Card

What a lovely day it is - I've just walked Maya wearing my shorts for the first time this year.

This seems like an appropriate card to blog today as Hubby's been away on a course for a couple of weeks and he has his final exam today. I don't suppose his instructors will get any thank you cards but they are a lovely idea and so appropriate at this time of year.

I began by stamping the single owl in place, then masked it off with one of the handy Clarity masks, before stamping the others and the blackboard.

As the group of owls are sat on a branch, I masked that off before inking the stamp.

I continued the line below their feet across the page to create the hill.

Then it was just a case of adding the colour with a brush and make-up sponge. The owls are coloured in with Spectrum Noir pencils.

The blackboard is coloured in with a black Spectrum Noir pencil. The words are stamped in Versamark ink and then heat embossed with white powder.

To finish it off I gave the teacher a gold monocle that I filled in with Glossy Accents.

I'd better go and tidy up now. Hubby will be home later and I have sewing pattern pieces all over our bedroom floor. I think I need a bigger craft room..........or maybe a separate sewing room!
