A Hoppy Easter

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

It's another Twinkling Tuesday and this week we have a guest Twinkler!!

It's none other than Jack Diedrich, Madelynn's younger brother! From what his mum says, he's ALL BOY and loves it when she gets out her paper piercer to make cards. Sharp object and stabbing paper - definitely a boy thing!! hahaha You can see the sketch on the Twinkling Tuesday blog.

This stamp is from a new exclusively digital stamp company I stumbled across. They're called 'Digital Stamp Oasis' and it can be found on Etsy.com, an online place to buy and sell all things handmade. Ellie, the owner, has some really, really sweet images available at the moment. I LOVED this Rebecca Rabbit image - perfect for Easter!

Since it's a digital image and I typically watercolor, I had to print mine using a laser printer. This has always worked for me. I have been told that you can watercolor on an image printed with an inkjet printer and heat set, but I tried that with my inkjet at home and it didn't work. It must be an ink thing that varies from printer to printer. If you use Copics however, you should have no problems at all.

If you'd like to play along in this sketch challenge, please use the keyword MTTSC13 when uploading to SCS or PCP and don't forget to leave a comment on today's Twinkling blog post so the Twinkling Team can see your creations. Don't forget to check out what the other Twinkettes have created this week!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I have a fun knight and princess card to show you all tomorrow. :D

Hi this is Jack. Mom is typing for me but this is what I want to say: I like how your card is made. I like the holes all around the bunny and I like that bunny. I like the paper and the brown (I swear to God he said that LOL!). Thanks for making my sketch!

Isn't that too sweet? Your card is AMAZING Sandra!!!

Rebecca Ednie said...

Sweet little image! And the bkgd paper is perfect! I wish I had some of it!

Oh he is the right shade of chocolate and looks good enough to eat...did I say that out loud? Any way this card is simply yummy. I think you must have a magic wand to crank out as many wonderful cards as you do.
