School for Changito

Now, you know if there's a set called "School for Changito," every teacher-stamper has to have it in her collection. So, thanks Archiver's, for carrying such a cute little monkey in one of my most basic habitats.

This card is for... someone.. related to me...who may be reading this blog... who graduated today with a Master's degree (her second). I guess that would be a Master Master. Or maybe Master's squared? Master to the Master? Anyway, impressive is a word that covers it.

All I knew when I started was that I wanted to use my new scallop punch and paper. I stamped and colored the image with my Copics first, then I wet with a color scheme. I think it turned out really cute. I was almost tempted to add yet another embellishment, but, when sending cards USPS, I am finding that simpler gets there in one piece.

Size: 5.5 x 4.25 inches
Cardstock: PTI white, SU! Always Artichoke, Winter Retreat (Simply Scrappin'), Brocade Blue (I think)
Ribbon: SEI
Stamps: Stampendous! School for Changito; MFT Essential Sentiments
Copics: Cool Gray, Burnt Umber, Flesh, Brick Beige, Atoll, Lime Green
Other: Dimensionals; Scallop punch

Okay, he is the CUTEST thing! I guess I need to make a road trip to Archiver's to get him! :D

As you may know, people who complete two years of online work toward a Masters Degree return to their "old haunts" from time to time. You know what I mean -- those places they visited while attempting to procrastinate. Alas, today -- day after said degree was received -- I returned to this site as part of my unwinding ritual. So, thanks for the card ahead of time.
