Hello everyone!
I managed to finish the History assignment woop woop so while I had a bit of spare time I thought I should maybe get a bit if a head start on the 'Thank You' cards for placement.

As soon as I saw Teacher Anya from The Greeting Farm I NEEEEEEEDED it! As I'm training to be a teacher I knew it would come in handy lol.

I used the sketch over at Anyone for Anya with Basic Grey papers and some translucent gems and flowers.
Now these papers well they were one of those "ooo I really like those " impulse buys. And they have sat in a drawer for few months and every time I have seen them I have been annoyed with myself because I really don't like them but I have forced myself to use them and to be honest I am really pleased! Moral of the story Rachael is to push yourself once in a while!

Anyway I used the good ole promarkers to colour Anya in and tried for my life to give her hair a bit of shading. I found some distress inks and tried to distress the edges a bit too.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

                  So I am off to start the NEXT assignment lol this one is Science and doesnt look too bad (she says!).

Speak soon

  2. Ooh, that's pretty, Rach!! :) Lovely colours and the perfect stamp for the job!!lol
    I'm the same with stash, esp patterned papers- infact, to prove the point, my first reaction to the ones on your card was 'Oooh!!', my second just after was 'yeah, but the patterns would scare me if I actully tried to use them myself!!' lol!! Nice when you push yourself and it works out so well though, isn't it?! :)
    Well, done on finishing the History assignment and good luck with the Science one!! Hope you have time for some fun this wkend, too!! ;)
    hugs, Rachel x
