Good Morning!!

Today's Twinkling Tuesday is brought to us by a Temporary Twinky - 8 yr old Jameson Ednie! His challenge for us this week is an inspiration one. He picked the book 'Suki's Kimono' to inspire us. You can see pages from the book and a write up about it on Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday blog as well as this week's featured Twinkly - Rebecca Ednie, Jameson's mum!

The illustrations from the book were so inspiring!! I love watercoloring and the images in this book made me think of all things whimsy. So when this Ketto stamp peered out from under a pile of paper on my desk, I knew I had to use her for this challenge! I also borrowed the blue and orange color scheme from the book and paired these elements together with this week's Mojo Sketch Challenge MOJO89 for my layout.

I kept it simple so the image could shine. Lucky Ketto is colored up with SU reinkers and Distress Inks for the background. I added some Stickles to her wings just to make them sparkle.
Need more inspiration or an idea to get you started? Check out what the other Twinkies have created for this challenge. Their blogs are listed on the left. If this challenge looks tempting and you'd like to play along, just create a card and link your blog post to Madelyn's blog post today, or if you don't have a blog, use the keyword MTTSC25 when uploading to SCS or PCP.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Happy stamping!!
