ABC...123


I would have loved to colour this image, but for  this weeks challenge over at Just for Fun the theme  is Black and White.
For the base I used a number mask and black soot distress ink, some places it is lighter than others, I had taken the mask off the card before I realised.  The young girl  image with her school slate is a Personal Impressions stamp.. The branch border is made with a Martha Stewart punch.
I had a good rummage in my button box  to find the button, its tied with string.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate your comments.
