Hello folks

Today is a very special day in our house - my son gets his GCSE results. He has worked exceptionally hard and I hope all that work has paid off. This is the card I made for him - 
I coloured Penny Black's A scholar stamp with the following Spectrum Noir pens and pencils - 

  • hedgie - FS1, FS3, FS5, CR1, 089, EB3, EB6, EB8, 104 and 097
  • hat - IG8, IG9, IG10, true black and 120
  • scroll - EB1, EB2, 108, DR1, DR5, DR7 and 033
  • sky - IB1
  • stars - CT4

Ingredients - 

  • Penny Black A scholar stamp set
  • Spectrum Noir pens and pencils
  • matt black card from Crafter's Companion
  • Sunny side up paper pad from LOTV
  • Tonic layering squares
  • Die'sire essentials star dies

This is the sentiment from the stamp set. It actually says celebrate your day but I masked off the bottom bit whilst inking.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -

Thank you for stopping by today
