It's that time of the year, schools are closing out preparing for the new school year and offering teachers a much needed break! With that comes gifts to those individuals who spent so much time with our little ones, and hopefully in some small way, conveying what an important role they played in their lives, and ours.
My daughter has two class teachers and I decided to make each one a wall hanging using some stamping and shadow boxes. Nothing too fancy, I used their favourite colours in the hope that they will actually make use of the gift someone in their homes! I will post both on different posts as I want to link them up to the current Wee Memories "Stamp It" challenge sponsored by Market Street Stamps.
The papers are by DCWV and the stamps are from Darkrrom Door. I simply stamped the three flowers using versamark, heat embossed with white embossing powder and then inked up the backgrounds with some Worn Lipstick and then Fired Brick distress ink. I then used a "splatter" stamp from Tim Holtz with some Vintage Photo and also inked up the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink.
I really like the outcome and wouldn't mind hanging something like that on my wall. I also made a matching card.
This was the easy gift to put together. You will see the next one tomorrow!
