Edwin in the Sun~


Hi All~

Back to work for me today after a week off.
It's good to get back, I always loose my routine a bit, and it takes a few days to get back into your swing of things, however I have had chance this afternoon to finish a card I started before I went to bed.

This is a Magnolia stamp of Edwin that I bought a few weeks ago, I have only used him once, but I do like him alot, perfect for a summer card (as I have made) or a boy's Birthday card.
I have chosen Green, and those of you who know me will know Green is my favorite colour..All my cards would be green if I did not stop myself!!
I have chosen the sketch from Card Patterns, and have entered him into a couple more challenges (all details below):

I have chosen some Basic Grey paper that has cycles on, and a spotty green paper too. The lovely sentiments are very summery.
Both the images used are Magnolia, and I have used my nesties to cut out the gate, matted up and finished with a few gems.
The images are all coloured with a mix of Copic's and Pro-Markers.
