Opportunity's Knock'in at Tiddly Inks Stamps! Join in the Fun!

 Tiddly Inks Stamp Co. is giving all paper crafters a great opportunity to show off our creations with a Design Team Call!  Normally, these positions are hand picked.  However, they've decided to open the flood gates and have an Open Call and will get MANY submissions of artistic creations. 
I'm submitting 2 in this post:
The first one is called SchoolGirl and is so appropriate for this time of year!  I fancy cut the image after coloring with copics, elevated her with pop dots.  I also cut an extra locker door, created a black space "inside" the locker, added the add'l door, and propped it open with the wedge of extra books on the floor.  Added an extra lock and she's ready to go.  If you follow me, you know that I often talk about my pre-teen Granddaughter that will be starting back to school soon.  With her long blonde hair, I couldn't resist this cutie and of course, had to add my fav twist -paper piecing.  I think she will be glad to receive this "note of encouragement" for a Great School Year!

My second submission is a more personal one that gave me such a chuckle!  It is called I Love My Job and I'm sure represents many of my fellow crafters as they go about their daily routine.  There's many time that we all feel buried but we persevere through it and are stronger for it.  Tiddly Inks has so many of these cute digital images!
For the background "paper" I used a printed canvas from Recollections Signature line with timepieces printed all over it.  Perfect for feeling the pressure of the ever present Time Clock!  The edges were sealed with Fray Check which, when dry you can't even see-a must with canvas.  I printed the image on so wood grain paper so I could fancy cut the desk from it.  Of course, you had to have the emergency red phone, multiple papers done in creams/grays/and pale blues, and the much needed laptop.  The sentiment is from a SU set from my stash.  This will make the perfect card for a fellow worker that works hard every day to help us all out at the office.  

I've seen so many absolutely Gorgeous creations already submitted for the DT call--they are one lucky group to have so many followers that are determined to join them.  A testimony to their place in the Digital world!  Good Luck to All!
