Sassy Teacher card for DT call at Paper Shelter

Hi Everyone,
What a hot day today for us...record breaking temps expected so I'm hiding in my craft room.
 Any excuse to postpone the dreaded housework!

I've a card to share that I'm entering into the DT call at the fabulous Paper Shelter Challenge.  I LOVE their digital images and couldn't wait to colour up this Sassy Teacher for a friend who is a retired school teacher.  There are so many entries in this call....please wish me luck.

The papers are from the wonderful Graphic 45 An ABC Primer Collection.
 TH Black Soot and vintage photo distressed inks added to the edges.  
 Image coloured with Copics.  I went over the blackboard with C00 before I added the greens...this is a tip I found on the ubber talented Shelby's blog.  I was aiming for a distressed look.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
  1. Paper Shelter Challenge #127 - Back to School
  2. Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #188 - Back to School
  3. Tammy's Scrapin Corner Challenge  #79 - Back to School
  4. 2 Sisters Challenge #160 - Back to School

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Pat K xx
