Green and Grey Captain Edwin

Here is the card I made for a young man who has reached the grand age of 16. Oh to be 16 again......or maybe not!!!

I used the lovely Captain Edwin stamp that I treated myself to at the Lincoln Sincerely Yours show.

Anyway, I've entered this card into a couple of blog challenges this week:

The Captain Edwin image, from Magnolia, was stamped using the Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink, coloured using the Copic markers and cut out:
  • Hat: N1, N3, N5, N7
  • Bandana/Sash/Collar/Patch: G85, G00, C0
  • Jacket/Trousers: N1, N3, N5, N7
  • T-Shirt: G85, G00, C0
  • Skin: E00, E02, E21
  • Sword: C0, C2, C4
  • Boots: N1, N3, N5
Two mats were cut from white and sage green card using the Labels 8 Nestabilities dies and the image was attached in the centre.

A strip of the green and black stripe and herringbone paper from the HOTP Heritage paper pad was matted onto a strip of white card. This was matted across a larger panel of the same paper and used to cover the card blank.

The sentiment, from the Papermania Hampstead Icons and Sentiments stamp set, was stamped onto a rectangle of white card using the Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink. This was coloured with a green Copic marker and matted onto the sage green card.

The image panel was attached over the paper strip and the sentiment attached below it.

The sword and buckle on the image were then highlighted with Anita's 3D gloss, and black card candy, from Craftwork Cards, were added to the herringbone strip.
