This is for today's LIMITED SUPPLY CHALLENGE - Masculine. Am I the only one who had a secret crush on a male teacher? I hope not, he was soooo cute and I was in High School. If he ever knew it he did not let on. Thank God! Anyway for all of those male teachers who get left out just like in the medical field I decided they needed their day too. I also did Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE - Warm & Fuzzy. Check out my book worm, yuk I hate worms but he is just tooo cute with his brown fun flock on him. My layout is from Thursday's MY FAVORITE THINGS SKETCH CHALLENGE # 95 and my color combo is from Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Cocoa Vanilla Teal. I absolutely love these new teacher/school sets just released from CLEAR & SIMPLE STAMPS. This one is called ABC...123 and I bought this fiskars border punch just for this set. I love using them together and since Shannon is in her 1st year as a full time Para Pro these sets are just perfect for me to make her something really special. My images were stamped in espresso ink then colored with copics. The close to cocoa base was stamped in CTC with the background image from the set that has all of the alphabet letters on it. I punched the oval scallop with my Maurvy Extra Large punch and and sponged the edge with CTC then cut the white image layer with Nesties oval and sponged the edge with teal. I stamped the sentiment with taken with teal. The other images were stamped on white with espresso then colored with copics, cut out, and popped up. I love how this turned out but what do you think?
