A Great Teacher


The quote (Quietfire Design) is stamped on Ranger's Specialty Stamping Paper with Archival Ink jet black and then die cut with Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares.  The next layer is brown cardstock die cut with Spellbinders Lacy Squares.  Next is white cardstock die cut with Fleur De Lis Squares, inked around the edges with Distress Ink spun sugar and then on the very edge with brushed corduroy.  Next I've torn part of a page from an old dictionary, used both candy floss and snowflake Fresco Finish paints to "stamp" circles (bottom of a mister bottle) and also dry brushed a bit of paint on the edges.  Lastly is our folded white card and I've also dry brushed these edges with paint keeping very little paint on the brush and brushing starting off the edge and coming straight onto the edge.  The leafy stem is cut from white cardstock with the Tim Holtz garden die.  It was painted with a mix of Fresco Finish guacamole and snowflake not totally mixing so you get a variation in color.  The dots (Wendy Vecchi stamp) are stamped with Archival Ink sap green.

With a teacher for a husband and two daughters studying to become teachers I could not agree more! Like the textbook background!
