DAD

I really love how this card turned out. I think I developed my special love to Charmer Edwin :-) This time I watercolored him with Sage Shadow and Pumpkin Pie re-inkers. The roses are colored with More Mustard. The background is made with the jewel tones shimmery chalks I used the lighter blue on the entire image and went on the left side with the darker chalks for more shadows. I could not resist... I had to give Edwin shimmery wings with stickles :-). My husband even likes this card and that made me really happy. I used Julie's sketch over at Poetic Artistry blog to finish this card.
CS: All Stampin up: Really Rust, Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip, White, Very Vanilla
