Edwin Goes to Ireland

Oh New England weather! We are experiencing a nice little snow storm; when it is all said and done 6 to 10 inches..Ugh! I shouldn't complain we really have any significant snow since October. But I want spring.

I made another St. Patty's decoration this time I used Edwin. The design is very simple. The clover is covered with some paper I picked up at Michaels.

I chose Edwin with the Butterfly. I removed the butterfly and added a shamrock. I colored him with Copic markers E000, E00, E11, E25, E31, E41, E42, E43, E50, R01, G21, G40, W00, and W1. I messed up his shirt so I stamped the shirt on the clay paper and wha la good as new. Creme de Chocolate Glimmer Mist was used to color the luggage. For the details on the luggage I used Copics and glitter pens. I found a map of Ireland online which I have used as part of the background. I used the Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork Die. To finish the project I used a muse token from Tim Holtz (Tradition) and added the checkered ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate all your encouraging comments and enjoy visiting your blogs.
