A Couple of Lollipops!

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

A happy Wednesday morning to you all!

Are you up for another sketch challenge from the Diedrich kids?! Yes, it's Whimsical Wednesday time again and this week's awesomely easy sketch is drawn by Nikolas Diedrich. Head over to the Whimsical Wednesday blog to check out the sketch and this week's featured Daredevil, Jaqueline Nordaune!

I have had these adorable Lollipop kids (drawn by Lori Boyd for Stamping Bella) since October last year and because of all the DT commitments I had going on I didn't have the time to ink them up. And it was such a shame too because I was so missing out! These stick figures with their cute little hands are easy peesy to color and are done in no time at all!!

They were so perfect for Nicky's sketch that I couldn't resist creating two cards! One with Avery the ballerina, and the other with Ethan, the skater. They're cute aren't they?? I didn't veer from the sketch much this week, but that's ok because sometimes the sketch just works as it is, like this one! Both images were watercolored with reinkers on Strathmore Bristol Vellum. I couldn't resist adding some Stickles to Avery's bow and skirt....it was begging for some!

Want to see more inspiration?? Check out what the Daredevils have created with this week's sketch:

It's your turn now! We wanna see what you can do with the sketch! Leave a link to your creation using the Mr Linky at the bottom of this week's Whimsical Wednesday blog post. Thanks so much for stopping by today and be sure to come back tomorrow! I will have some candy up for grabs! :)

I have to say that my greatgrandson Bradley makes me laugh every time I am with him. He is three years old and anything I do is funny to him. I make faces at him and it cracks him up and then him cracking up cracks me up. It makes me smile right now talking about it. I wish you that kind of day............Patm

Robin McK said...

Wow, I love your colouring! Especially the way you make the colour radiate out from behind the character!
