Edwin - Superhero.....

Hello,

Oh my goodness the weather is amazing here scorchio! Hope you are enjoying sunshine too summer has so arrived!

I have made a door hanger for my grandson Luca as he is so proud of his bedroom and loves hero's.


I have used this cute Magnolia Edwin and coloured him with distress ink pads stamped in archival coffee onto Waterford water colour paper 300gsm hp. The letters are Tim Holtz grungeboard. I have distressed these with vintage photo and sprayed them with glimmer mist iridescent gold. The circles and stars are quickutz. The tiny stars are a tiny punch. The owl is Embelliscrap which I have distressed with vintage photo. The circle was cut out with a nestie. The edge of my paper has been distressed with vintage photo and the sparkle is stickle glue star dust.



Well, I wish you all a fantastic weekend! Thank you so very much for visiting me!

love

inks used
skin - antique linen, tattered rose
hair - walnut stain, black soot
