Wee & Whimsical Wednesday

Welcome to another Wee & Whimsical Wednesday. If you're new to my little blog, I try do this every other Wednesday - and it always features fun products from Inchie Arts. Today, I'm using a Twinchie square paired up with a new image from Lockhart stamps. Since the Twinchie is two inches square, you can get a good-sized image on it, just like this new web lawn chair.

I giggled when I saw this new Lockhart image the first time, because it reminds me of being a kid. Seemed like my parents always had a couple of these chairs around! I remember one in this color scheme, too - so you know what they say about art imitating life! Since there are fine details on this image, I used both Copics and Prismacolor pencils. The silver pencil added great metallic detail for the aluminum frame of this chair, and the green vertical stripes were done in pencil to match the green horizontal stripes (done with Copics). Since the Twinchie is made from artist-quality matboard, it takes both of these coloring mediums beautifully! (You can even use the Copic Blender pen well with these Inchie Arts squares. The Blending solution doesn't get away from you like it does on so many surfaces.)

Of course, I had to choose 'Sit back and relax' for my sentiment on this. I used my stamp positioner to get the orientation to how I wanted it for this card - which is a great tip to remember with Lockhart sentiments (more on this tomorrow!).

I hope you have a wonderful day - and you get a chance to sit back & relax! Be well.

such a sweet card! I love the papers you used to give an outdoorsy feel to the card.
