Magnolia-licious Sketch Challenge

This is my first card using an Edwin image. Coloring and paper choice is easy enough but finding embellishments is other story. I am sure I'm not the only one to have a limited selection of masculine embellies, there just isn't that much out there. Mental note - Want to make a million $$$? Design a line of masculine products.... good ones (lol). I guess that is easier said than done. Anyway, this is the card I came up with for the August Magnolia-licious sketch challenge. I tried to make the 2 Tilda images look like they were peeking through the portholes in a ship. I had a lot of fun making this card. I hope you like it. Below is a picture of the copic markers I used.


Stamps: #293 Tilda with Pumpkin, #287 Tilda Picking Lilacs,#520 Row Boat, #102 Edwin with Paddle
Paper: 3 bugs in a Rug - Playtime Boats, SU Baja Breeze cardstock, Gina K white
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers
Accessories: Fibers from my stash

Hi Michelle,
Your card is just delightful!! Great idea to have the two Tilda's looking out the port holes! I first thought Edwin was thinking about which gal he would rather take out on the boat with him LOL LOL. Love your choice of papers and your colouring is great!
Hugs, Candy
