Pencil Congrats


I am playing in today's Free For All Challenge on Splitcoaststampers
CONGRATS & CONGRADS
today's challenge is to make a Congratulations/Graduation card WITHOUT 
using a cap, gown or diploma

So I used my digi
I was inspired by my friend Jenny's card in THIS blog post.

I printed five pencils off to the side directly onto my card base. Then I printed out on pencil onto a scrap piece of white cardstock. I colored it with Copics then embossed with the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes Embossing Folder. Then I adhered it to the card. This is a flat card....snail mail friendly. 

RECIPE:
STAMPS:Pencil Talk digital image (Clear Dollar Stamps)
PAPER:White Cardstock (Papertrey Ink)
INK:Printer, Copics Y17, Y21, YR23, N4, N7, N10, E31, E35, E37
ACCESSORIES:Cuttlebug, CB Distressed Stripes Embossing folder
TECHNIQUES: Dry Embossing, Coloring With Copic Markers, OLC, Digi

THANK YOU FOR VISITING. ENJOY YOUR DAY!
