Bellarific Friday: Back To School!

Hi all,

It has been a crazy couple of weeks!  I only have a few days left of vacation, so I am squeezing every last ounce I can!
This week's Bellarific Friday challenge was to make a card with a back-to-school theme!  Em has some adorable images with a school theme, so this was definitely a fun challenge!

Here's mine:

My base is Baja Breeze CS, and my patterned papers are from the SU DSP pack called Slumber Party.  I added some studs across the top and bottom (bought them at Michael's), and the black strip across the middle was punched with my Martha Stewart crown edge punch.  I also sponged both the DP pieces with some dark brown ink.

I stamped Spencer the Bookworm onto Bella's Bestest Paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I coloured him with Copics and added some shading with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS.  I outlined his glasses with my black Sakura Glaze Pen so he would look extra nerdy too.  I cut him out with Rectangle Nesties and added some Wheat sponging inside the stencil. 

Next week's challenge???  Animals!  Make a project with animals (image, papers, embellishments, etc) using any of the images at Stamping Bella, and send to Emily ( by Thursday night.  You will be entered to win some Bella Bucks, and your project will be published on the Bloggabella!  We can't wait to see what you've got!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
