We have a few little friends headed to kindergarten this fall, so I set out to make them a card to go along with a book about going to school. Our local bookstore, Huckleberry Books, had a fantastic selection of books for back to school. 

I started with the bus and schoolhouse in the Village Heroes set from Lawn Fawn. I stamped them onto coldpress watercolour paper using Archival Black ink and then coloured them up with my Tombow markers. I tried to add in some brick details to my schoolhouse and aimed to keep my colours fairly subtle.

Next, I wanted to create a mountain scene. I decided to use my Taylored Expressions Circle Masking Stencils to block off a smaller scene. I stencilled in some mountains and a grassy hillside using the ink that was already on my blending brushes!

I really struggled to find just the right sentiment for these cards. I finally settled on the one from the Little Dragon set: May Your Day Be Filled With Adventure.
