ABC...123 Back To School with an A+ Sketch

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE - Cocoa Vanilla Teal what a kewl color combo from Holly who is hosting today. I love these colors. I also loved Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE - Leafing Pen Resist so much I had to do another. This time I used my silver leafing pen and a Fiskars template for school images and since Shannon is at Pre-K and we all know how kids love to put their hands all over any and everything the hand prints just called to me. LOL. So I decided to go with a school theme for today's TRY IT OUT TUESDAY CHALLENGE # 32 - Back To School especially since I wanted to use these 2 new school sets just released from CLEAR & SIMPLE STAMPS - A+ Darling and ABC...123. My layout is from Monday's 2 SKETCHES 4 YOU sketch challenge being hosted this week by Clear & Simple Stamps. I used the hand print stencil and silver leafing pen on watercolor paper. With a drop of close to cocoa and a drop of taken with teal ink in separate ink wells I brushed some close to cocoa ink with a drop of water bc I did not want the background real dark then I sponged some taken with teal ink over the watercolor paper then tied a strip of wide sheer brown ribbon after using my corner rounder punch to make the 3 edges scalloped. This is matted on close to cocoa. I stamped the images on some PaperTrey Ink Vanilla cs I picked up at CHA then colored the images with copic markers. I cut the pencil out and popped it up. The main image is popped up after being matted on taken w/teal.
