Surfer Edwin

I can finally say I'm the owner of a Magnolia. I received the Summer kit last week and all of the images are so cute. Now, I just wish I had some Copics to color them. That'll be my next big item purchase. Maybe some time next month I can get my first set.

Doesn't Edwin make a cute surfer? I thought these papers from DCWV's Tahiti stack worked well with him. I colored him with the limited amount of Prismacolor pencils that I have. I'm not too happy with the finished image, but it'll have to do. The sketch used for the card was Pretties Weekly Challenge #58. I really like this sketch and plan to use it again. The full recipe is below. Sorry for the quick post. It's only 8:00 and I can barely hold my eyes open! That could be a good thing, though, as I have to be at work by 6:30 tomorrow morning! I should be back before the weekend with another post. I got two cards made last night using another sketch challenge. Ciao!

Cardstock: Smokey Shadow, True Black (PTI)

Paper: DCWV Tahiti Stack
