Welcome Back Students!

Good day and welcome to another Hambo Hoedown

This week we have a colour challenge - RED, BLUE and YELLOW! to celebrate the return of the students to their classes! yay!

I have used the new Hambo Stamps digital image that is available now called "Pencil"! I printed it out several times and coloured it with my copic markers.

I used my new shading techniques that I learned from the fabulous Suzanne Dean, although, I did colour these pencils before I cut them out, so they were all shaded the same way - and then, of course, when I layered them - the shadows fall all over the place - dang it!

I also entered this is into the Splitcoaststampers Colour Challenge yesterday because it was red, blue and yellow - I LOVE it when a plan falls together!

I used the Tim Holtz Bricked embossing folder for my background and ran it through some core-dinations cardstock so that I could sand it - oh so easy!

I stamped the date with my own office stamper onto a piece of Papertrey Ink die cut note pad paper and added a Stamping UP punched star with a button tied with twine to finish it off!

Won't you join us at the Hoedown?! It's a favorite colour combo!
