You Rock Card

Hi everyone!

Today I'd like to share with you a card I made with two of my new Paper Smooches stamp sets, the Chubby Chums and the Sentiment Sampler, as well as my older set, Falling for You. I had such a fun time making this little scene, and figuring out what pieces to add and such =) So, here's the finished card:

I used the owl from Chubby Chums, the 'you rock' sentiment from the Sentiment Sampler, and the little apple from Falling for You. I stamped the owl and the apple twice, colored them in, and cut out. On the second owl I cut out only the bottom two layers of scalloped feathers, curved them, and adhered them on top of the complete owl. I cut out the little leaf on the apple and did the same thing to that.
The books, pointer, clock and blackboard were all hand-drawn, colored, and cut out as well. I embossed the sentiment onto the blackboard, using white embossingpowder. I added some Glossy Accents to the whole apple to make it shiny, as well as to the black of the owl's eyes, to make them more vivid. I added some lines to make it look like a room, with a floor and a wall.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
