Time to "Walk like an Egyptian" - or maybe hop like one

It's finally time!!!! We've been planning this and working on it for a while now and I can't wait to share with you all of the amazing and wonderful artwork created for this release.

It's "Hop like an Egyptian" time!!!  Tiddly Inks and Make it Crafty have collaborated on an awesome release of digital stamps with an Egyptian theme.  There are soooo many new images to see and enjoy that we had to do a combined blog hop to showcase all of them.  And to add to the fun, there is a hieroglyphic code to follow along the way and loads of great prizes to be given out.  

If you didn't have a chance to start from the beginning, click HERE to go to the main page to start the hop.  
To keep this hop simple, we are going to be hopping from the main post HERE and not linking from blog to blog. To make this work, we suggest you open a new window for each link (click CNTRL and the link you wish to visit), which will open the next blog and keep the main post up too...that simple. This way, you can easily navigate between each blog in the hop and return to the main page when you are ready to go to the next blog.
I have a couple of projects to share with you.  My first one combines both a background image from Make it Crafty called "Ancient Egyptian City" and a Tiddly Ink image called "Walk Like You Mean It".  I colored it up with my Copics and added a fun sentiment made in a photo editing program.  I can't wait to give this one to my older sister this year - she is the original queen of d'nile!  hehe  ;)


My next one features one of my favorite images from this collection from Tiddly Inks called "Jackie 2".  I wanted her on kraft paper and decided to try my hand at Prisma colored pencils on kraft.  Gotta say, not ready to give up my Copics but I love the way this one turned out... It's such a different look than what I could achieve with my Copics.  I added some clip art images for the frame around the Spellbinders die cut, a few feathers and a silk cloth torn ribbon to tie it all together.  And of course, I had to add some bling!


You've also found one of the clues by stopping by here...


So, leave a little love and enjoy the rest of the hop... There is so much to see and enjoy on this one!  Go back to the home page HERE to keep on hopping!
