IO Challenge- School Spirit

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.

I have used the Book Cap design (G2335) pretty much every year as my go-to image for gruaduation cards.  It is a great stamp for coloring!

IO Challenge- You Did It

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:
