Back to School Project

Hello Everyone!

Hope all is good and dandy. Continuing with the month long challenge/s and partnership of new sponsors sites for J.D.E. this week we are are introducing Mayzy Art Stamps. Mayzy Green is the heart of these cute stamps. She's a self-taught artist and boy do I love her stamps. At J.D.E. we decided to make it a "Back to School Theme" of course the challenges are "Anything Goes" for everyone using any stamp your hearts desire.

Here is my project/s; a mini backpack and a card to go with it.
The Mayzy Art Stamp I used is "School Time Hailey"

This is my "wanna be keychain with charms" LOL I wish I had the tools 
to make an "actual keychain" but I thought the backpack was too bare
and just had to add something. What is a girl's backpack without a cute charm anyway...? 
Right! A boy's backpack. lol
I know I have shrink wrap somewhere in my crazy looking craft corner but I just couldn't find it
maybe it's in the garage when I was putting my "junk-not-so-much-trash" away. So what I did is I printed just a few accents from the "School Time Hailey" digi stamp and enlarged them.
I colored them and then added Glossy Accents. 
This is my first time using Glossy Accents and I love it.
 I used Glossy Accents to make her glasses have the "glass" look.

For her uniform I printed one out the same size,
then cut just inside the lines all around it as well as
the pleats. I did this because I wanted a uniform like
the one my daughter will be wearing for Kindergarten
the school uniforms will be either Khaki or Navy blue.

Here's the card...
The sentiment is from Emma's My Creative Time: Gift Card Sentiments Set

and the mini backpack.

I hope you ladies and gents enjoyed your visit.

Anything Goes

Cardless (I do have a card obviously lol but I did use the stamp elements as charms I hope it counts)

Thank you,
