Back to School!


Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the Lil' Inker Designs Color Team debut!  I am so happy to be playing along with the new Color Team today!  Make sure you are following the blog hop because there are prizes up for grabs!  You should have arrived from Alyssa Schritchfield's blog.  If would like to start at the beginning, then hop on over to the Lil' Inker Blog!

I am very happy to be sharing one of the first sets from the new line Sugar Kissed Cottage!  It's called School Girl and oh is it soo cute!  I love the vintage look and all the great school themed sentiments!  There is a new designer in line for this collection, Karen Baker!  Make sure to check out the Lil' Inker Designs blog for all the details!

I've heat embossed the image with White Filigree embossing powder and accented the apple and leaf with Stargazers Watercolor Palette color.  Just plain 'ole CAS.  Perfect for this image!

Cynthia said...

Fun chalk board design, Amy! Such a sweet vintage image.

Holly AKA KopyKat said...

OMGosh this is so adorable, I love it.

Jen Carter said...

I'm sure you know what my comment will be...I love how you used this image without coloring it! (Did you guess right? LOL!) You know how much people images intimidate me! I love how you colored just the apple to highlight it! And the white little dots you used are a great little school-like accent too! I picked up some of those pails at Target too, how could I possibly pass them up! So cute!! Love the picture you took too with the apple included! (This comment turned into a novel! LOL!!)

Patrice said...

Great interpretation of the theme - I hope you'll link up with 52 Card Pickup this week!
