Hang In There
I have decided to show you another one of my attempts at coloring the Magnolia stamps. I'm still not real satisfied with the face. I seem to have a problem with blending the skin tones and leaving part of it white. I found a real good tutorial to watch, but I have to practice some more. One thing I definitely know is that I love the Magnolias and they are such fun to color. Edwin is all caught up on the anchor, and I think that makes a perfect card for a friend who is going through one of life's low spots or who may be sick. He's a real cutie in my opinion.
I colored him with Copics, matted him with Soft Suede SU cardstock run through a crimper. All the card stock is SU, the ivory strip is stamped with the Very Vintage SU Roller run through some Soft Suede Ink. The DP is from K & Company. Border punch is MS and the ribbon and anchor charm are from my stash. I have colored the Little Girl version, but haven't made her into a card yet. I will though because she is too cute!
I am going to enter this in Totally Papercrafts Boys Challenge this week. Check it out I have a couple of blogging friends on the Design Team and my pal Jeni made her debut this week on their team. Join in if you want. There are great prizes to win.
