Edwin Fishing

Oh dear, I'm off to a bit of a slow start this morning. Our power went off some time during the night so when we woke this morning we had no idea what time it was, the clock was flashing. But the sun was shining, lol, so we managed a bit of a sleep in thanks to the power company, haha.

My card today is for Magnolia Down Under Challenges. This week the challenge is a sketch by me.  I was sitting at my desk earlier in the week unsure what image to colour or where to start with this card, then my friend Karen challenged me to make a card using an Edwin stamp so out came this oldie but goodie. He is "Edwin Fiskar" from the Summer 2007 collection. Have you seen the new "Waiting for Fish Edwin" from the Sweet Rainbow Collection? Too cute. I think I will have to order him as well :) And the matching Tilda "Gone Fishing". Actually, I love all of the new stamps in the Sweet Rainbow Collection. Oh my poor credit card :)

Can you tell I have a new punch around the page set? lol. Its been getting a little work out lately. The papers are all Websters. Edwin was coloured using Copics and the background done with Prisma pencils.

It was great fun playing with an older stamp and making a male card for a change. I hope you get a chance to come and play at MDUC this week and try out my sketch for yourself :)
Thanks for visitinng me today! I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs xx
