STMC20 - Back to School Challenge

Hi Friends! It's Saturday!!! Are you ready for this week's Stampendous Saturday Challenge? This week it's the Back to School Challenge. I used a combination of 2 of my favorite school sets - School for Max (SSC675) and Book Trio (SSC676). Isn't Max the Mouse adorable? I started off by creating my background paper by stamping the A+ stamp all over the Kraft paper with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I added a layer of patterned paper and then I prepared the top layer of patterned paper by using the Binding Edge Edger Punch. I love how it looks like notebook paper. I colored the Max images and apple image using Copics and added a little highlight with a white gel pen. Finally I punched them all out using Nestabilities dies and popped them up on the card with 3D foam tape. So fun! Join in on the fun and play along for your chance to win a wonderful prize from Stampendous! Simply comment on the STMC20 blog post on the Stampendous blog with a link to your entry and for the full Saturday challenge rules click here. There is also a wonderful Stampendous Flickr Group you can join and show off all your beautiful Stampendous creations.

Have a fantastic weekend!!! Thanks for stopping by for a visit!
