Blue, Green and Brown Jungle Edwin

So, I thought it was about time I uploaded another card.

This time it is my dear hubby's birthday card and I decided I wanted to use my new Edwin stamp.

I have decided to enter this card into a couple of blog challenges this week.

The first is the Creative Inspirations blog challenge, which this week, Challenge #55, has a colour theme of blue, green and brown. Hopefully you think this fits into the theme!!

The second is the A Spoonfull of Sugar blog challenge, which this week, Challenge #98, asks for a card For The Boys.

I started by stamping the Jungle Edwin image onto smooth white card using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured it in using the Copic Sketch markers.
  • Hat/Socks: YG07, YG17, N3
  • Shorts/Boots/Stick: E31, E35, E57
  • Shirt: BG11, B41, B45
  • Knife: C0, N3, BG11, E57
  • Hair: E35, E57
  • Skin: E00, E02, E21
I then added highlights to the image using a white Sakura Souffle gel pen (although these didn't look right on the hat so I coloured over them with the green Copic marker).

The image was then cut out and mounted onto blue Core'dinations card and beige card panels that had been die cut using the Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities.

A strip of the Light-Hearted paper from the Basic Grey Offbeat paper pad was matted onto a panel of the beige card and a length of beige hemp cord was tied around it. This was then layered onto a square panel of the Impromptu paper, also from the Offbeat paper pad and the beige card.

The sentiment, from the Daisy and Dandelion 'Marshmallow Does DIY' stamp set, was stamped onto the smooth white card using Versafine Vintage Sepia archival pigment ink and matted onto the beige card. A couple of small blue eyelets were set either side of the sentiment and short lengths of the beige hemp cord were threaded through them and attached to the underside of the panel.
