GCK - Back to School!

Well, I'm back today as promised...with a series of cards!

I've labeled this series "GCK" or...Greeting Card Kids!  Each card will feature one of the stamps from the set...a cute lil' set from the catalog that my friend & I like to call "Campbell's Soup Kids." You'll soon see why, lol.

I've had such fun with these - they're so fun to color (watercoloring is my fave way to relax when cardmaking)!

We'll start with Back To School...well, because it just makes sense since that's about the time of year it is right now. ;-)

Day 1 - GCK - Back To School!

I used the Pawsitively Prints II DSP as my starting point. Love the bright cheery colors!

I then watercolored the boy & girl image using my markers and aquapainter....ahhhh...did I mention that I *love* watercoloring?! :)

Mounted it on a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock, added a little scallop border of the same color, and colored my white taffeta ribbon to match. :)  The main image, of course, is mounted up on dimensionals. ;-)

It's a pretty CAS card, I'm itchin' to add a little somethin' to me, it screams "I need a couple of brads!"
Well, what do you think?
