Magnolia-licious Edwin Challenge


Well at long last my Magnolia Summer Club Kit came. I just adore all the images that came and it was worth every cent I paid. This little guy here is my first Edwin image. He is on his way to the beach for a little surfing. I found this paper at Michaels the other day, and knew it was absolutely perfect for this image. The punch is a Fiskars boarder punch called Boundary Waters. I glittered the sand at the bottom of the broken down fence to give it the shimmer of sand. Oh yeah, he really doesn't have a mouth, however I thought his head was a little big, and I was just experimenting when I put a small faded dot in the place of his mouth. I tried (DUH) to wipe it off and it smudged a tad giving him a surprised look. Maybe he got caught surfing on a restricted beach, LOL.

Very neat. Love the Native Art embellishments you added to the background and the blings on Edwin's zipper really made him stand out of this card.
Hugs,
