Teacher thank you card - LIM

Hello again!

I'm afraid I couldn't resist the challenge over at the Less is More blog and my nephews' cards are still waiting to be made... The challenge this week is to make a one layer card with embossing!
For some reason in my photos the embossed oval looks as though it didn't imprint properly but looking at the card now - it did! Maybe the camera's picking up something I can't see.....!
It's about a month and a half now until the children finish school for the summer holidays and I'm having to think about teachers cards & gifts... This challenge was just perfect to get me started. 


 heat embossed image

It's very simple to make -
I embossed the background with an oval nestabilities die.
Then stamped the Messy rabbit schoolhouse stamp with pinecone versacolor ink, added clear detail embossing powder and heat embossed. I used the stamp-a-ma-jig to position the stamp but I think it's still tilted a little to the right....
I stamped the sentiment using Woodware clear stamps with cardinal red versacolor ink and again heat embossed with clear detail embossing powder.
I coloured the image with Koh-i-noor pencils, paper stumps and Sansodor solvent.

Looking at it again I'm not too sure it needs a sentiment....

Thanks for visiting again and for all your comments - they mean a lot to me!
