Just Magnolia Week 15 ~ A sketch by Tab!

Over at Just Magnolias today, there is a fantastic sketch by the lovely and might I add, very talented Tab!

I decided to colour two images of Edwin with his surfboard this morning and depending on which one I liked best, I would make a card with. So off I went, inked and stamped, and coloured him twice!


I'm a woman and they don't come easy to me, so I decided to make two cards, the one I thought was the best I'd enter into the challenge - Again, I had to make a decision, other half was out working and Poppy fast asleep in her cot, so no easy option, so both of them are here!

Edwin in Orange

Edwin in Teal...

There you have it, I don't know if you have a preference, but I liked them both and couldn't decide!

~ Recipe ~

Stamps : Edwin from the Summer Magnolia Collection (Which I'm in LOVE with)
Card/papers : Papers printed from Bearly Mine Designs Designer Extreme Vol I and II, Card from stash
Tools : Corner rounder punch from Woodware (I think)
Embellies : Ribbon from stash, Card Candy in orange and teal from Donna (Fanks again :oD ), Surfboard cut out from a post card I saw in a shop window and bought a couple.

Thank you for popping by and for any lovely comments you leave!

These are fab Kimmi, I love them both but the orange one is my favourite, I think that is because orange has always been one of my favourite colours (that might have something to do with orange smarties!). I love your postcard surfboards!
