Green and Terracotta Sherwood Edwin

I fell in love with this image as soon as I saw it - and I think I probably paid over the odds for it when I saw it at the Lincoln Sincerely Yours Show back in May.

The Sherwood Edwin image from Magnolia was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured using Copic Sketch markers:
  • Hat/Tunic: YG67, G29, G85
  • Shoes: E35, E39, E57
  • Hair: E39, E57
  • Belt: E35, E39, E57, C4
  • Feather/Arrows: E07, E35, E39, C4
  • Skin: E00, E21, E51, E13
  • Shadow: N1, N3, E43
The image panel was then matted onto a panel of olive green card from the Core'dinations Elements card pack, punched along the bottom edge using the XCut Diamonds border punch.

Three equal panels were cut from the Vintage Tee paper from the Basic Grey Boxer paper pad and matted onto the card blank. Two small ovals were die cut from the Henley paper from the same paper pad using a Nestabilities die and matted to the sides of the image panel.

The sentiment was stamped below the panels using a greeting stamp from the Elzybells Swirly Sentiments stamp set and ColorBox Burnt Sienna fluid chalk ink.

Here are the challenges that I am entering this card into:
