Try It Out Tuesday #32 - Back to School!

It feels great to be back! I feel a bit out of sorts after not participating in a couple of Try It Out Tuesdays for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, but I didn't want to miss this one! Our ever talented Suzanne Dean challenged us to create a Back to School gift so I chose to create a mini clipboard! I love how she turned out!

This is done using the sweet stamp Danni by Elisabeth Bell for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. Danni is named after our very own Danni from our Design Team. She is just the sweetest and most generous spirited people you'd ever want to meet and she loves butterflies and I thought it would be great to carry that into the school year. We all need to have a little bit of whimsy in our lives! She's colored with copics and Prisma colored pencils and OMS and her wings and the butterflies are touched up with Stickles. I used a glaze pen on her ribbon and then spritzed the entire clipboard with Baby's Breath Shimmerz Spritz. The clip at the top is from Tim Holtz and is decorated with some pink and brown ribbon and has a butterfly charm hanging from the clip. Sorry you can't see it very well.

I love how her wings came out and how they just shimmer with the spritz on the top. Just way to pretty! I almost forget to tell you that I distressed the sides just a bit.

I want to welcome Carolyn Bounds and Dianne Prewitt as our two new Guest Design Team members for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! Welcome to our family and it's so great to have you here! Their work is just fabulous and I know you'll want to stop over and look at their great creations!

Make sure you hop over to the store's blog, Follow Your Heart and check out everyone else's Back to School project. You won't be sorry! And make sure you come back on Thursday to see my sneak peek for our New Hearts and Hugs Collection #2 for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design by Victoria Case! Let me tell you, they're just yummy! I can't wait for you all to see these great designs! These sweeties will be released on Friday, but there's blog candy starting on Wednesday! Oh, yes, I came back just in the nick of time!
