It's nearly time to go back to school!

Jack starts in year 3 of primary school on Tuesday and this is a little card I've made for him to wish him well for his new school year. I fell in love with the image when I saw him, he reminds me of Harry Potter (which is a good thing as Jack LOVES all things Harry Potter!). I have done something different and printed the image directly onto kraft card. Colouring/shading on kraft isn't easy but I love the different effect on this card, hope you like it too...



Supplies:
Image - Professor Owl by MelJens printed on kraft cardstock and coloured with Promarkers
Papers - Blissful by Authentique from Crafty Emma's Store
Sentiment generated on pc
Ruler brad - had this in my stash for ages
Buttons - American Crafts
Twine - Whiff of Joy
Tools - Circle & scallop circle Nesties, Martha Stewart photo corner punch
