Its a very exciting day for me today, I'm very honoured to be a Guest Designer for this weeks CASology challenge!!!
I've been playing along with this challenge for a few years now so its wonderful to be part of the team for the week!! This weeks theme is one that will definitely be on a lot of people's minds with the end of Summer happening:
Education makes me think immediately of teachers and how they aren't paid nearly enough for all the hard work they do. As parents we need to give them lots of support and help as they have such an important job teaching our children. And because of this I based my design around teachers:
This is such a happy little apple and I still love the idea of bringing the teacher an apple. Although I'm sure she could probably do with a bottle of wine and box of chocolates instead....lol!!
My card design idea was to have the background apples portraying the children in class, and the red apple being the student who wants to thank their teacher for all their hard work.
I started off by stamping the apple image (from Simon Says Stamp 'Happy Days') with grey ink randomly on the background. I then stamped the apple again with black ink on another piece of white CS and coloured with my pencils. Once I was happy with it I fussy cut it out and popped on foam tape. The sentiment (from the same stamp set) was stamped underneath and I gave the apple some shiny cheeks with Glossy Accents.
I have two challenges I would like to enter:
