Blueboy Edwin


Im not sure why I believe that Edwin is looking a bit blue, maybe its because it just strikes me that way. Ive stamped him out first onto a separate piece of white card and coloured him with my Karisma pencils and then cut him out ready to stick on the wall. The wall was also stamped onto white card and coloured again with my pencils, I then cut this out with my rotatrim and positioned Edwin on the wall. After which I have mounted him onto a pale blue pearlescent card, followed by a dark green patterned paper and lastly onto a paler green card.

The base card this time is 9"x 7" size, mainly because the stamped image is so long. On to this base card I have layered a piece of dark blue pearlescard card and two patterned pieces of blue paper from the Bearly Mine Designs Cd, Ive covered the middle seam with a piece of dark blue pearlescent paper edged with one of my Martha Stewart border punch, and then positioned my stamped mounted image on top.

To finish of the card, I have stamped a greeting onto white card and cut it out with one of the Nestabilitie tag dies, and attached it to the card at the bottom with a hand shaped paperclip that I found in Staples this weekend, they have a load of different shapes, I bought a mixed bucket of them. Ive then stuck two dog buttons at the top, and some star shaped jewels down on either side of the stamped image.
