Michelle Perkett Studio Back To School Challenge

Hello, it's challenge day over at Michelle Perkett Studio!

This week is Marion's Michelle Perkett Studio Mermaids challenge and they've chosen Back To School for the theme.  Michelle split the design team in half and Marion and I are the design team (The Mermaids) coordinators and alternate the challenges week to week.  

How about this darling Michelle Perkett Studio image called "Hugs Before School"?  I think this is such a cute digital image and I couldn't wait to color it and make a card.  The big dog kind of reminds me of Clifford the Big Red Dog, can you tell I have young kids?  ;)  My two youngest are in week 4 day 2 of back to school so we have gotten back into the swing of things.  Early mornings getting kids fed and ready for the day, packing lunches, doing the homework after school, etc.  I'm so thankful for my husband Rick, he's a tremendous help with all of this!

My cute Hugs Before School image is colored with Copic markers.  The Copic marker color combos are YG11, YG13 & YG17 for her skirt, BG10 & BG11 for her shirt, R22, R24 & R27 for her backpack and the dog is E50 & Y21 and I used a touch of Stampin' Up! Crystal Effects on the dogs nose for some shine.  Kind of odd colors together but I have this October Afternoon paper pad called Report Card and those are the colors in the papers.  What better papers to use for a Back To School Theme than Report Card! 

I hope you'll join us over at the Michelle Perkett Studio challenge blog for the Back To School challenge this week!  To play in the challenge you need to use a Michelle Perkett Studio image, there are so many cute digital images at her Etsy store and new images arriving all the time!  Here's a link so you can take a peek and be inspired!
