Stampin Royalty Challenge #87

 This week we have a timely challenge for you at Stampin' Royalty.  This week our theme is
And most of us here in Canada are heading back to school on Tuesday.  As a teacher, I always have such mixed feelings this time of year.  Good thing I love my job right!! 
When I saw this stamp set (Recess) in the summer Mini I knew I had to have it, but I need to say that it's now retired as we are about to go live with the Holiday Mini tomorrow.  I love this set, and it was really good for me to work on my colouring.  On these cards I used ink pads and a blender pen for most of it.  I can't seem to find my watercolour paper anywhere, and I just don't have the knack for watercolouring on Whisper White.  Anyway, these were all done on Whisper white with a Blender Pen, and then I used my new frames textured impression folders, and a variety of In Colour cardstock and made the frames for each picture.  The background was stamped tone on tone for a more subtle look.  Scroll down for closeups of each card and a list of supplies at the bottom.
