Discover, Learn, Achieve

I created this altered peg (clothes pin) for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge #230 - Back to School.  I also used a new release digital image from Doodle Pantry.

I've had this peg in my stash for a while now and haven't been sure what to do with it (you know how scrappers are, they buy things, putting them away forever hoping inspiration will stike!)  Then this challenge came up and I instantly knew what I wanted to do.  This sweet peg would clip onto the chair-bag easily for the first day of school or term.  It has a subtle amount of clear Stickles around the edge for that all important sparkle and the cute little birdie is sure to grab that certain someones attention as they find their new seat for the year.  I think this would also make the perfect teacher gift to sit on a desk.

I created this project with vintage school themed papers and chipboard pieces.  I coloured the digi image with my copics and made the little backpack 3D.  I added some gloss to the backpack so it looks shiny and new.  Lastly I fuzzed up the cute little birdie with some Sparkly Fluff to accentuate her feathers and cheeks.
Here you can see the little feathers a bit easier.  I forgot to mention that her legs and beak are also glossy.
