Back to School

This is really late for the latest Make my Monday challenge, I have just been so busy covering holidays at work, this is the first chance I have had to put this on.

The theme this time is Back to School.  I think that is easy to see from the card.

I have done quite a simple design. I have used a piece of ordinary school book type paper for the background. I have use a stencil for the ink splats. The ruler is a stamp and coloured with a little distres ink Pumice Stone. I have cut out the stars from a piece of patterned paper. And the words are die cut. A nice quick card for a change for me.

I have coloured the image using Copic pens and added a little glitter to the Ladybirds wings.

The background is a stamp by Studio Light from the Romantic Botanic range. I have then coloured it using distress inks.
