One Stitch at a Time Challenge 177

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we're having a 'Back to School' challenge. Now, this is one of those that I find hard, as I've never sent a 'back to school' card in my life, and even if I wanted that, my kids are either working or at university so it's not relevant anyway. Still, I've gone with a 'learning' theme, and a wish that would certainly be appropriate for someone starting on a course of learning - whether formal or otherwise!

I chose an image from Reece's Scrap Pieces called Little Painter.

I designed a 'frame' in Photoshop Elements, but couldn't print it and the image onto the same paper because what's best for printed colour doesn't work well with Promarkers, so it's two separate layers.

The background uses four strips of Coredinations Black Magic in shades or red, orange, yellow, and green. I embossed using an Embossalicious folder and my Big Shot Pro and sanded to reveal the core colours.

I hope you can join us this week.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Bearly Mine where anything goes,
Cuttlebug Mania where they want embossing,
Top Tim Tuesday where they want embossing,
Just Inspriational who have a photo for inspiration (from which I took the rainbow of colours.)
Crafting by Designs where anything goes,
Colour Me Creative where anything goes,
Sweet Stamping where they want 'bold and beautiful'.

Great card Josephine, I've been having a good old snoop about your blog! lol.
I saw your comment re printing in colour & using promarkers on the same sheet of paper & I wonder if you've tried print perfect from La Pashe? I find it's great for printing & colouring!
