TIME FOR AN EDWIN!



Hello Everyone...and a Happy Sunday...sun is shinning after a freezing cold frost and been outside and pruned the roses today...very quickly as I wanted to get back inside and BLOG!!...[that's what my daughter thinks anyway..lol..]

Have an Edwin from Magnolia to share today....



Dangling Sea Edwin  from the Bon Voyage Collection...



I coloured Edwin with Faber Castell pencils..but his trousers and trims with a blue copic B12...and shaded with my pencils..

Added the Marianne "Lighthouse" die..with red cardstock behind it..the rocks around the bottom of the lighthouse is really a mountain stamp from "Impressions Obsessions" and then added Marianne "Shells" die..




Some cheesecloth...well gauze from the first aid kit as I cant get cheesecloth here..and a stripe ribbon [knot]..and there we have him.

Going to enter this into these challenges....

Divas by Design  [Anything Magnolia]

Mid Week Magnolias  [Endearing Edwin]

ABC challenge  [N is for Nautical ]this challenge just popped up as I posted.

Thanks so much for stopping by..and I feel terrible as I floundered with posting up some comments on my last card and deleted them..how awful..and it has played on me all day....but at least I read them and they will stay with me..sorry if yours was one of them...dont go look though..as you might feel neglected.

See you tomorrow.

luv CHRISSYxx

What a delight of an image - love him hanging there by the seat of his pants! Fabulous colouring on the image, Chrissy (love that navy blue), and all the accompanying stripy papers, including the lighthouse, work briliantly for the nautical theme. Terrific card!

I'm doing a bit of catching up after my holidays, I can see you've been a crafty little bee, so many lovely cards! This one really stood out to me, as you might know I love nautical themed cards and cards for boys, and this one ticks off both! Your combination of different striped elements is so clever, it enhances the nautical feel of this card, and sailor Edwin is one of my favorite Magnolia stamps! He looks great teamed up with the die cut lighthouse!
