Art by MiRan Facebook Group August Challenge Anything Goes

Good afternoon and welcome to my DT post for new challenge at the Art by MiRan Facebook group. As always our second challenge of the month is an anything goes challenge, as long as you use an Art by MiRan stamp, which can also include the rubber stamps from Whimsy Stamps. Our optional theme this time is Back to School/School Colours.

My school colours are royal blue, which I don't really like to use on my cards, so instead I used a school themed image and made myself a new pen holder for my desk at work using the gorgeous Box Art Baroque template from Dutch Doobadoo. I used the adorable Bookaholic Kaite and coloured her up in browns with a touch of pink.

And here she is. I kept the box fairly simple using some of my new papers from Anna Marie Designs. I inked all the edges with Crumb Cake and then Chocolate Chip inks for a slightly distressed look.

And here it is all filled in with some random pens. You can't see it, but I added a piece of card as a divider in the middle as all my pens slid down when I added them. This held them up a lot better.

This pen holder is also for
