All about Edwin

Well I  certainly have had my mojo back with three posts within a week, a new record. I have found that colouring has really relaxed me over the last couple of weeks and I find myself just sitting and colouring. I then go to my coloured images grab out the DPs and then just sit and look. I then leave them on my desk and then go in later and play. I have found this method has worked best for me. Anyway I have recently aquired the suitcase stamp and Edwin with his toy aeroplane. I was hoping to get two cards made one for my sister and her husband who are off on a trip and a dear friend from work who was going away too. Ironically they were both going to the sane country anyway I didn't get any cards made in time but I am now prepared in case anyone else I know goes away. I went through my stash and found that I had these DP's. I colored all the images with my Copics and added some twine. Anyway here is Edwin ready for a trip.

I am entering this card in the Tilda's Town Challenge Blog All about Edwin

Flower Tilda

Well two posts in one night, I know it's either all or nothing!!!! Anyway I picked this stamp up on Saturday and have been anxiously awaiting her arrival. Instead of choosing DP's I just coloured her how I wanted. I then found all this paper in my scraps and it all came together. I have coloured Tilda with my Copics and have added lots of stickles to her wings. I then used the Stampin' Up bunting punch except I couldn't work out how to attach it. I then got out my flowers to have a play and one of them fell and landed near the bunting and I decided to go with that. I really love the flowers and I am getting better at arranging them on my cards. At first I couldn't get it right but just like my Copics I persisted and I am extremely glad I did. Anyway here is the card and I am entering it in the Bunting/Pennants challenge at Totally Tilda.

Row Your Boat

Wow it has been so long since I have done a post. I have been so busy as I always am this time of year. Anyway I finally got a chance to sit down and colour.I managed to pick up some Magnolia papers from the latest collection. I adore the Row your boat paper and decided I wanted to use it with the Captain Edwin stamp that I had coloured up a while ago. I then coloured the Port Hole Background to use with Edwin. I was so pleased with the way this turned out, then I found the background map stamp that I picked up as a make and take at a craft show I attended a while ago and it all seemed to come together. The next day the MDUC announced their Bingo challenge and all I needed to do was add some cheesecloth and my card was complete. My card also qualifies for the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge, Water, Water, Everywhere I didn't use the paper but I can guarantee you that it won't be long before you see it in a project. Anyway here is Captain Edwin, I apologise for the photos my iPhone no longer syncs with my computer.
So I have used the middle line for my card, Edwin, Cheesecloth and Pearls. I have used Captain Edwin as my image, cheesecloth behind the porthole and pearls on the waves. Here he is

I have used my Copics to colour all my images, now for a close up.
I am so happy with the waves. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up and I doodled around the outside so it would look like a map.
 Until next time happy crafting!!
