Just Magnolia Challenge #1

If you haven't heard about this new challenge blog yet.......... where have you been. Run by the fabby Bev it is a must for all Magnolia fans. The first challenge was launched on Friday with a prize worth £50. They have already achieved 300 followers & had over 100 entries for their 1st challenge. Amongst the DT are Bev, Marcea & Rach. Well I just had to join in so here is my card.....While on holiday I made the smart decision to get myself a Koi waterbrush & I am now soooo enjoying stamping. If you don't have one it is well worth it & you can pick one up for about £5. I rotated the sketch as Edwin was a tad too tall to fit on the card & resized to create an A5 card. I stamped & coloured Edwin playing football using a mixture of Marvy Le Plume & Whispers pens. I layered onto a piece of scrapbook card from the Static Collection by Crate Paper. I have used my HOTP papers & added 2 epoxy stickers onto diecut stickers from my stash. The play sentiment is from the same collection which I added 4 gems to just for a bit of bling lol!!!I took the papers through to the inside of the card & coloured in another Edwin.
