Hi everyone! Today is all about school spirit, colors, graduation, etc. I took the opportunity to start with a card that celebrates where I went to college. Go Hoos! I graduated from the same university as the owner of Impression Obsession, so there just happens to be an IO stamp that features the University of Virginia. I realize that the Rotunda (H1952) might be a niche market, so I also made a card that would be good for graduations. You could change the colors of the card depending on the school colors of the recipient. Both cards were made using Peerless watercolors.
Book Cap design (G2335) pretty much every year as my go-to image for gruaduation cards. It is a great stamp for coloring!

Today's challenge is called "You Did It." The theme got me thinking about cards you would make for a graduate. The Never Never image (J15075) is really great for someone who is moving on from one stage of life to the next.
To make the card, I stamped the image onto 140lb watercolor paper with black Versafine ink and colored it with an assortment of Peerless watercolors. To add a little extra depth, I outlined some of the lines with Prismacolor pencils. Here is a close up to see the colored pencils:
