Water Baby Edwin

Magnolias - Page 061Hi Everyone! This is a card that I made for my oldest son. This Summer he asked if he could be enrolled in the Summer Nautical Camp so that he could learn to sail. He loves the water. I always call him my “water-baby”. He is just loving it. We drop him off at 9:30 am and he finishes at 4:30 pm. I miss him (so do his brothers) the days that he is gone but he is so excited and happy that it is worth it. So when I saw this Edwin with the wetsuit and little board, I thought I could create a little “scene” card for my son. In all, I have used 4 stamps. The fence and Edwin are from this years Summer Kit and the reeds and cloud are from last year’s collections. The cloud stamp also has a bench and flowers but I just didn’t ink that portion of the stamp. So I did a lot of masking and coloring but I am really happy with the way that it turned out. I am entering this card in the Magnolia-licious challenge which is to create a card using Edwin.

Here is a better shot to see the shimmer from the Atyou Spica pens that I used:

Magnolias - Page 060
  • Stamps: Magnolia Summer 2008 & 2009 Collections
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi
  • Coloring: Copic Markers & Airbrushing, Atyou Spica Glitter Pens
  • Embellies: SU Hemp Twine

I can’t wait to give this to him! It was so much fun creating it for him.

Hope you have a great day and thank you for stopping by!
