Primary School

When I hear the word "primary," I think of it in botanical terms, i.e. primary growth. For this project, however, I am playing on the word by two more common uses: school and colors.


  • I used a stencil cut from a stamp by Andrea of Snapping Monsters
  • Dylusions sprays in London Blue, Cherry Pie, and Lemon Zest (primary colors) were sprayed through the stencil
  • Amy Tangerine alphas for "primary"
  • The trusty old typewriter provided the rest of the sentiment; each piece was outlined using Black Soot Distress Ink and Tim's water brush 
  • Andrea's color words from her stamp set were added to the appropriate areas, and her inky splatters from the same set provided some artsy interest
  • I mounted this into a panel of scrap DCWV cards to know
I'd like to enter this into the current Inkspirational Challenge:

I think I'll give this to our new principal. I will miss our old one, but this new gal promises to be fun!


  1. A fabulous card for the Ink challenge but even moreso for your new principal! Primary perfect! Are you a teacher? I am...high school English. Have been for a zillion years and, for the past couple of years, have been very, very, very part time. Not ready for summer to end; we start on the 31st...Gahhhh!
