Tessie the Teacher

Good morning! Have you been checking out the peeks on Stamping Bella's blog? Lots of new stamps coming soon, so if you've been loving the Uptown Girls or are a fan of Mo Manning's designs, you're in for a treat! Here's one of the new stamps coming out real soon, Tessie the Teacher'. 

I just adore her! I colored her with Copics, then cut out the entire image, so I wouldn't cover over the 'blackboard' behind her. I used that real wood paper to die cut a frame, then painted a piece of dark grey cardstock with Charcoal acrylic paint. I 'stamped' the coordinating sentiment on the blackboard, but the white wasn't as white as I wanted it to be, so I went over it with a Sharpie poster pen.

The alphabet border was cut with my Cameo. So are you excited for the new release? I am!

Thanks for stopping by!
