Where the Love Is for Whimsical Wednesdays

We have another  great sketch from the Diedrich gang this week. Thanks to Jack, I think, for the sketch I worked from but as it was on my iPhone I can’t show it to you. Wonder why? I like to keep my iPhone handy at all times. That includes reading emails while I soak in the tub. I know, it sounds crazy to have my beloved mini computer next to water but it has worked for over 1.5 years. Today, the baby picked it up while standing in the tub. I panicked and tried to grab it from him and I/we/he dropped it. It seems fine but we have it sitting in a container with silica just in case any water seeped in, so hopefully it will be OK. So I’m sorry but I can’t share the sketch with you.

home is where love is
The stamps for this card are actually a set with separate door, windows, clouds etc so you can kind of design a ‘scene’. I airbrushed the background, masking my clouds as needed. The flower stems are a dotted line stamp that I think was designed to be used as smoke from the chimney. The leaves were made with a heart stamp. I coloured the scene with Copics, the colours were on my iPhone too, sorry. I’m listing the ones I can remember: W 1, 3, 5 V95 (it was V9_) R 06, 81, 83 G21, 63, BG 10 B 12, 23,32, 4_, 91, 93, best I can do!

Thanks to The Character Cafe for their sponsorship this month. Visit next Wednesday to find out who the new sponsor is! Please visit the Whimsical Wednesdays blog for the sketch this week; I’m so sorry I can’t show it. I hope you will visit all of the DareDevil’s blogs; I’m sure they have FABULOUS projects to show you!

Ok, let me warn you first. Hehehe. I totally want to bend your ear about Copic markers!! I noticed your copic badge and thought "YAY", finally someone who uses them.
I want to purchase copics and need advice. I'm gonna go read your blog, actually, that'll happen tomorrow morning, lol. So, tomorrow, I'll add comments as I'm already following you. Then, can I email you and we can talk? I so need advice on these markers. :o)

Happy Easter!

This is really pretty, Rebecca! I love how you incorporated the dots at the bottom (dewdrops, I think :) and that image and sentiment are equally beautiful. Awesome job!

I am so not good at stamping, I've tried so many time and it never comes out quite right. It's so fun to see your work- you're so good at it! :)
