For A Special Teacher - Taylored Expressions February Blast from the Past Blog Hop

Welcome new and old friends! Thanks for stopping in and checking out my creation for the blog hop hosted by Taylored Expressions! The creative focus was "Going Green" and we were to create a card using the color green or incorporate a recycled element in our project. I followed this sketch they provided:


Here's the card I came up with:


I wanted to make a card that celebrates all the super wonderful teachers out there and I thought the Teacher Desk Cuppie stamp was perfect for it! My starting point was with the pretty green and blue pattern paper I selected from Cosmo Cricket for the background...don't you think it's pretty? I paper-pieced some that paper for the desk as well.

Then, I used a bunch of my Copic Spica glitter pens and colored all the accessories on the desktop with it. Gotta love all that sparkle! I ran into a little snag trying to find a red pearl to add to Cuppie's head but then I remembered I had some white pearls on my desk and used a dark red Copic to color the surface of the pearl...perfect!

I hope you enjoyed my creation for the hop and have fun checking out the rest!
