Kick-Stand Edwin!!!


I got the chance to play around in my craft room yesterday and here is one of the cards I made. I used Edwin Raking on a couple of cards and this one is for last week's sketch challenge. Yes, I'm a few days late, but oh well!! I actually got about 4 challenges done yesterday, so I was pretty proud of myself!!

For the colouring on this guy, I used my Copic markers to colour him but I used a little bit of a different style. Instead of colouring all the areas completely solid, I left little areas with a bit of white to draw the eye and give it a little more visual interest. Let me know if you like this way of colouring.



Anyway, he's stamped in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink on Papertrey's white cardstock. I used some Basic Grey Periphery paper on the top and then Not Quite Navy and Soft Sky SU cardstock. I strung some Michael's ribbon that matches Soft Sky and wound it around the top three times and then added a piece of brown gingham. I attached the NQN matting onto the top portion then pop dotted the remaining layer with Edwin on it. I also added a button and some linen thread and then put Crystal Stickles on his wings!!

WOW!! You gals really wanna win a Magnolia, don't you??? I have had a TON of entries already and the competition is fierce!!! I don't know how I'll ever choose a winner!!! But you've got until 8pm EST tonight, so keep 'em coming!!!

I really DO like the new style of colouring! It draws your eye to the image and now I have to go play with my copics to come up with something similar! :)

The kick stand card is so cute, I was trying that one myself LOL>....the layouts of you and your daughter turned out wonderful, she gets her pretty looks from mom. I laughed at the post about you wearing her clothes...I wear my son's Old Navy tops. LOL>...not as girly though.
You are so talented, cards, scrapbooks, it shows.
Wonderful cards....
