Just Edwin

Hi hope you're all doing ok,

I've always felt that compared to all the gorgeous creations we see with Tilda as the star...
that poor Edwin doesn't get much of a showing.

Well I came across another challenge blog for stampers who love Tilda and Edwin
Magnolia Stamp Lovers who are show casing Edwin for this challenge, so I had to join in.

I made a step card and added a die cut circle. After embossing with cuttlebug swirls I sanded the blue cardstock to show the white core for a wave effect.
The sky was done with chalk and the ship is a die cut in Magnolia pirate paper.
I tore some sand coloured paper and inked the edges with distressing ink.
Pirate Edwin, barrel and skull were coloured with copics.
'Ahoy' sentiment is from pirate stamp set and 'Happy Birthday' from DIY set both by Woodware.
I inked them while the nestability was still on.

Thanks for stopping by have a fun weekend.

Love cherie   //*.*\\
