Back to School Challenge at Tiddly Inks

Hello!

Well it's been quite an exciting couple of weeks over at Lili of the Valley while we've been getting everything sorted for our appearance on Create and Craft and all of the fantastic products were shipped off to them today ready for Thursday! Hooray! =)

You can watch the fabulous Dawny from our DT who will be on with Nigel at Noon and 4pm on Thursday over on Create and Craft TV.

Right, on to today's card which is for the latest challenge over at Tiddly Inks which is 'Back to School'.

And here's the card I made:


I used the fantastically geeky TI 'Genius' digi stamp and coloured him with Berry Red, Blush, Chestnut, Cinnamon, Cool Grey 3, Cool Grey 4, Crimson, Ivory, Sunkissed Pink, Tan and Walnut Promarkers.

The papers are from 'Memorandum' Tiny Tablet by Lily Dee Designs, the die I've used for the page is Marianne Collectables 'Tab with Text', the letters are some I've had for ages that I think I got from Samuel Taylors, the little 'brads' on the clips are 'Newsprint' Candi from Craftwork Cards and the corners, clips and brackets are all Woodware Chippies coloured with Fired Brick and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks from Tim Holtz.


I was a bit worried about doing his hair because I thought it would look accidentally messy rather than purposely messy but it actually looks quite good, I probably couldn't get it to look like that again if tried but never mind! =)

Hope you like the card!
