Edwin - Superhero.....


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.

I have received these awards from these wonderfully gorgeous girls. This is from Moni.

This is from Paola.

 Thank you so much girls you are so very lovely to pass these onto me xxx I would like to pass these onto everyone who visits me as a huge thank you for looking!

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

Wow Kim your colouring with the distress ink is amazing. I love to hop to your blog, it's an inspiration to my creations and I have also fun colouring with distress. I understood how to use them finaly. I also am a huge fan of the stickle stardust ;)

Hi Kim!
well it's not so hot here in Australia as we have our winter now. Mind you I am sitting here with short sleeves. Not really a very cold winter on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland.
I looooove your door hanger and I bet Luca does too. I think I will make one for my grand daughter in New Zealand. Of course she will have Tilda on hers.
I love the letters of his name and all the decoration you have done. Very cute owl up the top. Your colouring as usual is superb.
Hugs Marion
