Shy Edwin

I love this little Edwin soooo much. When i saw him in my Magnolia DT package i was really almost jumping up and down :-) I have two little boys and he will be so adorable on many comming cards for my family.
This card was made for an another amazing sketch over at ISMAKI!

To color Edwin i went back to my roots when i did not own all these fancy and expensive coloring mediums like markers and Prismacolor pencils. He was simply watercolored with my Stampin Up inkpads and an aquapainter. It was a lot of fun. But at the end i think i should have been braver with the blue for the sky.

Stamps: Magnolia and Stampin up for sentiment
Tools: Nestabilites and SU Punches
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Purely Promegranate, My Minds Eye DP
Embellishments: Antique Brads
Coloring: Inkpads, White Signo Gel Pen, Chocolate Chip for sentiment
