Edwin for a change

My dear friend Alethea recently mentioned that she was after Lilly Rose from the Prince and Princess Collection. So for her birthday I managed to track her down at Tildas Town which is a long way from here (Australia) so I decided I didn't want her to travel so far on her own and she needed some company. I decided to purchase Edwin with lizard to make a card for my son's birthday. Tom loves lizards and it is his job at school to look after and care for the two Blue Tongue Lizards that are school pets, or Lizzy and Bluey as they are better known. I thought this would be a perfect image for his birthday card and tried to co-ordinate it with some real boy colours. I coloured Edwin with my Copics and I added some stickles to the lizard to make him stand out, if you look closely he even has a blue tongue! Tom can also be seen walking around school with a lizard draped around his neck. The background stamp behind Edwin is from Kazass and I embossed using clear powder and then used Forrest Moss Distress Ink. The other papers were from my stash and I finished it off with some twine. I am so happy with this card and I am entering it in the Just Magnolia challenge which is to follow a sketch. The Mad for Markers challenge which is to use masculine colours and the Tilda's Town challenge which is anything goes.
