This is my second post today. Scroll down for my Christmas card.
Just Add Ink have a cool sketch challenge this week and the team at Friday Mashup have a sketch/school theme challenge. I combined the sketch at JAI and the school theme at Friday Mashup to come up with this card:
My 11-year old is in his last year at primary school and he's got a great teacher this year. Mrs Patten loves technology so the kids get to use iPhones, iPads, iPods and laptops in class - all in the spirit of learning, of course! In New Zealand, our school year is the calendar year, so I'm a few months early making this, but I wanted something to fit with the Friday Mashup challenge.
I went for a chalkboard look, so the eraser marks are meant to mimic the splatters in the sketch. The strip of notepaper is from the Notebook DSP from a few years ago. The arrows are from an old SU arrow punch and the die cuts are from the Naturally Serif die. I used the new chalk marker to draw lines around the outside of the chalkboard. Wow, that marker is smooth! The A+ comes from the First Day set - such a cute set.
Thanks for looking.
