It is hard to believe that summer is almost over already and that school is about to begin. My own little rugrat will be starting pre-school this fall (gulp!) and so are many of his little friends. When I saw this week's Friday Challenge: Back-to-School, I thought I would take the opportunity to help these little wee ones celebrate another milestone in their young lives.
I began with this cute little lion head image, stamping and coloring with Copics. Since I planned on hand-drawing around the image, I also outlined the whole thing with a black pen for consistency. I sketched out a body for the king of the jungle and then built a little yellow school bus around our furry bus driver. I colored in my drawing with Copics and wrote the word "School Bus" over the window with a white gel pen. Then, I cut the whole thing out!
For the inside, I created a custom sentiment with a font set that reads: "Hope your first day is roaring with fun!" I was happy with my finished card -- can't you just see this guy tooling around town with his precious cargo? Happy First Day of school to all the sweet little rugrats out there!
