High Hopes Mary J Teacher

I know it is still a few months until the kids break up for Summer but I just had to use these great stamps from High Hopes to make a card for Zoe's teacher. This teacher set is High Hopes March monthly special. Stamps used: Q-037 Mary J Teacher Angel, T-049 Teachers Desk, J-068 School Background & E-126 Believe. Other stamps not included in this offer which I have used are: 3 Star Corner and School Background. The papers I have used are from the Infuse Collection by basic grey. I cut around the Teachers desk and mounted it onto two different colour papers used for the floor and walls. I stamped the Blue frame paper with the School Background (ABC, 123, Apple, Pencil, Ruler). I used my Cricut to cut the frame for the scene. I coloured Mary J and the rest of the scene with my Prismacolour pencils with the use of Sansador and stumps for blending. I kept the board white as Zoe informed me that they use interactive whiteboards now! Mary J's wings are outlined with the silver prismacolour pencil then coloured with my Sakura stardust pen. The wings are more blingy in real life but this didn't photo well. Mary J has been added to the card using foam pads. Hope you like it!
