Red, Black and Grey Captain Edwin

This card was based on a layout in Issue 68 of Papercraft Essentials magazine.


The Captain Edwin image, from Magnolia, was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink and coloured with Copics:
  • Hat/Trousers/T-Shirt/Belt: N1, N3, N5, N7
  • Jacket/Bandana: R20, R24, R27, R29, R32, R37, R39
  • Sash/Patch: R32, R37, R39
  • Boots/Sword Hilt: W1, W3, W5, W7
  • Sword Blade/Buckle: C0, C2, C4
  • Buttons: N5
  • Hair: W3, W5, W7
  • Skin: E00, E13, E21, E51
  • Shadow: W1, W3
  • Outline: C2
The image was then matted onto black card.

Patterned papers from the Dovecraft Charcoal Designer paper pack (Dots and Squares), Papermania Monochrome Capsule Collection paper pad (gingham) and Papermania Red Hot Capsule Collection paper pad (red Clover Leaf) were cut to size and matted on the black card and layered up.


A length of black grosgrain ribbon was knotted and added across the layers and the image panel added over the top.

The Birthday Wishes circle sentiment, from the Hero Arts Birthday Messages stamp set, was stamped using Brilliance Graphite Black pigment ink and coloured using Copics:
  • Sentiment Circle: R24, R27, R29, C2
This was then added beneath the knot of the ribbon.

Three dark grey polka dot Card Candi, from Craftwork Cards, were then added in the top left corner.

The sword blade in the image and the circle sentiment were then both highlighted with Anita's 3D gloss.

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