One for the Boys

Good morning Blogland

Today I would like to show you a card made with "Guitar Edwin". I don't have many Magnolia male images, but I do love this particular one.

Edwin has been coloured using Polychromo pencils and the edges have been inked with Tim Holtz distress ink. I have also stamped round the edges with another one of my favourite stamps from Stampelglede, it is from the "Grunge Collection"

The papers are from Kaisercraft, part of the "Jungle Bug Collection". These were from my local craft shop, The Craft Box at Elsecar, I practically live there lol.

I am entering this card into the

Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog, "One for the Boys".
