Like most kids, my son goes back to school on Wednesday. So, I need to make a few cards to put in his lunches. He's a bit nervous about starting first grade because he didn't get to meet the teacher and other students in his class before the first day, like they did in Kindergarten. He's especially concerned because in his own words, "I'm not ready for second grade. I don't even know how to spell crocodile yet!" Well I laughed and explained that he was going to be OK because he was only going to first grade and most adults don't know how to spell crocodile. He continued to explain how I was wrong because this was the second grade that he was going to because he went to his first grade last year. Oh well, go figure!!
Anyway these techniques didn't come out to good especially the Versamark resist. I think the stamp may not have been completely clean or something. You can't really see it in the picture. I colored the image with PrismaColor pencils and Gamsol.
I bought these stamps at an Expo a few years ago. You should have seen the things she did with them, awesome. Check out her web site and you'll find some amazing products and samples: http://www.bugawumps.com/
I haven't bought anything from there in a while because I forgot all about this stamp. It got buried in with some of my son's things, but I can't wait to check it out again!
