Some Odd Girl Top 3 Challenge Craftisan Studios Kim RippereThis is for a “back to school” challenge.  I’m working on creating my own backgrounds and I love how this one turned out.

The original plan was to have a back to school subway panel over the background, but that just didn’t work out.  The on the fly alternate plan was to create my own “back to school” lettering that fit exactly.  I think I like this better!


  1. Card Base:  Bazzill white card stock, A2.
  2. First Layer:  White card stock, colored with Distress Ink (bottom to top):  Mowed Lawn, Shutter, Glass, Ocean, Lemonade/Jeans.
  3. Second Layer:  BackToSchool, created with Silhouette Studio and cut with Silhouette Cameo.
  4. Image:  Some Odd Girls – Tobie book bag, colored with Copics.

  2. Really like how you did his hair! The background is soft and muted – but delivers a deinite impression – it makes a wonderful “out of focus” canvas for the very sharp image & sentiment! I like that combo alot! So glad you are sharing your project and creativity at 613 Ave C – thank you!
