Edwin Waiting for Fish...

My local store Memories of Time got in the new Magnolia Sweet Rainbow Collection last week and of course I had to rush over and get them. They have an online store if you'd like to pick some up yourself.  I was thinking about using this for my Water Coloring Class, but I think it needs more pizazz. One of the things about boy cards you can't add a BUNCH of flowers.. I think it turned out cute. I just don't know what else I could add to make it WOW. So no class I'll have to start over. But I'll throw it in my kit bag.. It is still cute!

I have colored Edwin with Ranger Distressing Inks:

  • Skin: Tattered Rose & Tea Dye
  • Hair/Pants/Fishing Pole: Walnut Stain
  • Shirt: Broken China
  • Magnolia Branch: Vintage Photo
  • Flowers: Fired Brick
  • Leaves: Peeled Paint & Forest Moss
  • Water/Sky: Tumbled Glass with A touch of Black Soot Under is feet.
  • Bobber: Fired Brick & Black Soot

The Paper is Echo Park: Summer Days, Bazzill Card Stock, Edwin Waiting for Fish, Magnolia Branch, Ranger Distressing Inks

Hope your having a great long weekend. Have a fabulous day.

Hehehe good sentiment for a fishing card! Have to say Edwin looks a bit zoned out...personally I think fishing is like watching paint dry, but hubby loves it!!

What a fabulous image, and you have done the perfect amount on this card. Gorgeous colouring, and I love the clouds.

How about shrinky-dinks. Cut out and color some fish. Shrink them and hang them from the card as charms.

Card is really cute as is but, it is really hard NOT to dress them up! LOL
