ABC......back to school

Afternoon peeps, well its cloudy and showers with a smidge of sun in between, we've made a start on preparing the sand for the base of the lawn well I've raked the sand and hubbys been on his knees flattening it down so I guess we'll be dashing in and outside all afternoon. However I did get up early to start making this card, I haven't made a card for the fun of it for ages as I've been busy catching up on my DT cards. There are quite a few challenges for 'back to school' this week and I thought it was a great excuse to colour this little cutie from Teddy Bo, the challenge there is black and white plus one other colour.Which I thought would be quite hard to colour using black, I only used 4 colours for this image, black, warm grey, pale blue and Indigo blue Prismas.....tell a lie I did add a touch of peach for the cheeks.I used glitter letters for the ABC and then outlined with Indigo blue to give them some dimension. the gingham paper is from Cuddly Buddly called Cottage Garden in slate.
Ohhhhh the suns back out off to do more gardening.........
