MTTSC10 - Thoughts of Spring

Tuesday today! Time to see what Miss Madelynn has in store for us for Twinkling Tuesday...

There it is! MTTSC10 - can you believe it's been ten weeks already??! Wow, time flies! This was a great sketch, clean and simple, and Madelynn said we could add a front image panel if we were so inclined, which I was. :)


My colors are Certainly Celery, Apricot Appeal, Old Olive and Soft Sky. I took this gorgeous new image from Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps {Paris Spring half sheet} and colored right on the rubber with my Stampin' Up! markers in order to ink it up. I did this because I wanted the tree parts to be Celery, the birds to be Apricot, and then when I was done I went back and added touches of Olive to the tree to give it a little more distinction. When I was satisfied with the coloring, I "huffed" onto the stamp to remoisten the ink and then stamped right on the white cardstock. I made a horizontal line for the ground and did the sky with my cloud template. The grass was made by sponging with Celery and Olive ink.

Woo hoo! Not nearly as complicated as I made it as I was creating, I have to say. *g* If you'd like to play along, we'd love to see your work! Be sure to link up your creation on the TT blog, and add the keyword "MTTSC10" when you upload to SCS or PCP so we can find your creations. Be sure to visit the rest of the Twinklettes {links on my left sidebar} for more fun with this sketch.

I really want to see your card, but none of the pictures on your blog are coming up they are all red X's I am on the phone with Janna Hull and she says she is having the same problems all week, so it must be a blogger thing!!!
