Here with a card for my son's sweet art teacher for the upcoming Teacher Appreciation Day in May. I make quite a few cards each year so I like to do them a little bit at a time. I drew inspiration from the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog and challenge 27 which is to use "buttons". I also chose to embrace the chalkboard technique that many of the design team featured on the challenge blog! Gorgeous cards ladies!!!
I chose to use a sentiment stamp that reads: "Art! Who comprehends her? Whom can one consult concerning this great goddess? - Ludwig Von Beetoven" I tried using my pastels to cover the embossed sentiment with a rainbow of color....what do you think?
Thanks for taking a look! And I have to say it...."Go Seahawks!!!" I know my husband is probably watching from Heaven as he was a season ticket holder for so many years and always hoped to go to a Super Bowl one day.......he would have been so excited today! My son and I have the game on and are watching it for him today! Love you Papa Stu!!!
Jill, looks like you found your mojo! This is so sweet and I am sure your son's teacher will love it. I love that rainbow coloring over the sentiment...so sweet.ReplyDelete
My husband was yelling and cheering all evening long...Yay...we are both SeaHawks fans! The card for the art teacher is perfect. I love that you used pastels over embossing. I am going to be trying that very soon Jill.ReplyDelete
Jill, love the pastel coloring over the embossing...great look! Perfect card for the teacher, you are so sweet! Great button and chalkboard card for the challenge. Always love seeing your designs. Thanks for playing along in the Serendipity Stamp challenge!ReplyDelete

Love the rainbow chalk effect ,and those pretty yellow buttons. I am sure the teachers will love this one too. Thanks for playing with us at the Serendipity Stamps Blog Jill. Hugs for you my friend.
Oh I love the color! I spent Saturday cleaning and organizing my "kids" (they are now 18,18 and 21) "craft box" - it was a giant tub and a pile next to it. Anyway, found a box of pastels in there - I'll have to try this!ReplyDelete
