Hang in There with Edwin

Well it's my turn to post an Edwin creation on the Magnolia Stamp Lovers blog. Only having one daughter, I don't purchase many Edwins. I don't have much use for boy cards and they are really difficult for me to make. I feel like I can't use any of my girlie embellishments on them. I decided to used one of the new nautical Edwins. This little guy will be part of the soon to be released Bon Voyage collection. His official name is Dangling Sea Edwin.

He is colored with copic markers. I used B39, B37, and B34 for the navy of his shorts and socks, some C1 and C00 to shade the white parts, and R29, R27, and R24 for his little tie. I used the warm greys- W5, W3, and W1 for the anchor. Basic Grey June Bug paper is the background and I added some twine colored with an E33 copic for a little decoration. I just knotted it because I thought a bow might be too girlie. I have used the sketch from this week's Friday Sketcher's blog as my layout.
