Good morning everyone and welcome to another instalment of ATC Tuesday.
First things first...can you hear the silence? Isn't it wonderful? The kids are all back at school and I have the house to myself. What a glorious day!
Don't get wrong, I do like summer...the sleeping in, the not having to be anywhere for a certain time, the spontaneity of being able to change plans at a moments notice...it's all good stuff.
But let me tell you...those first golden moments of silence once all the kids are out of the house are absolutely divine!
So, today's ATC is a tribute to all the teachers that help keep moms everywhere sane from September to June - THANKS:
I used the direct to rubber technique colouring the image with Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango and Real Red. I tell you, I was SO sad when they retired "Simply Thanks", but I love this new "So Many Thanks" single stamp and I know you will too!
I don't have a square punch the right size to punch out this particular image, so I had to trim it using my Tabletop Cutter. That didn't quite work out the way I would have liked, so I took my scissors to it and trimmed it by hand. Then, I matted it in on a piece of 2 1/4 X 3 1/4" Tempting Turquoise. The Tempting Turquoise was matted onto a piece of Real Red, around which I tied the 5 /8" grosgrain ribbon.
The Tempting Turquoise/Real Red Panel was matted to the 2 1/2 X 3 1/2" piece of Tangerine Tango using Stampin' Dimensionals.
What do you think?
