School Days

Today is the big finale for Stampendous October Release Hop!  I decided to share some of the sweet vintage children from the new release.

I started with a fun chalkboard:
This started with a picture frame in the shape of an easel.  I painted it with white acrylic paint.  Cut a two pieces of Chalkstock to fit in the frame.

I stamped the Kids on Wheels using black ink and colored with my STAEDTLER Aquarell Watercolor Pencils.  I sponged the edges with blue dye ink.

I used the Altered Type Alphabet
to stamp the letters and numbers using a variety of ink colors.  The edges are sponged with yellow dye ink.

I created a coordinating card to go with the chalkboard:
 I added a coordinating Graphic 45 paper for the rulers. 

Now onto all the other inspiration in the hop: 


Thanks for stopping by!
