School Days (Published)

Hello Everyone
This scheduled post is a Part II to my post from earlier in the week as I am sharing some more cards that were published in Take Ten (Autumn issue). Four cards I submitted using the wonderfully nostalgic Oxford Impressions’School Days were collected in a feature they aptly called School Days.
The colours haven’t shown up very well in the photographs I took prior to submitting and now I no longer have the cards to re-take the photographs but the base of the cards was a Kraft colour with the photo realistic stamps in Archival Jet Black ink onto glossy cardstock.her school daysI like the stamp in the set of the notebook or what in Primary School we called a jotter (am I showing my age I wonder?) DIGITAL CAMERAI will share only one more card.
spelling beeShe wasn’t the top student in her class, always smudging the ink!  I deliberately smudged the ink on the ABC and star for effect.DIGITAL CAMERAThank you for your visit to this post.

    Congratulations on this being published. It was a flashback to my past. As I remember having a scrapbook folder called School Days that you collected photos and memories of school to keep. Probably is lying in my attic somewhere…

    How very wonderful your two cards are, I am smiling when you use those red tones, with that tone of brownish , they are lovely together, and both the spelling book and the pencil is wonderful stamps, and ofcourse the girls so beautiful,too.
    UHH I remember the real ink writing, so difficult not to smudge 🙂
    Dear Lynne ,someone ,here ,wrote you should have your own magazine.. that would be torn from the shelves ,also by me!!!
    Sending you warm hug.
