Magnolia Challenge sketch

This is the sketch for this weeks Magnolia Challenge blog. Another great sketch to work of this week. As I had an order to make a card for a young man who is due to come back from his around the world trip "lucky for some to have the opportunity" I decided to use this sketch. I inked up my wee Edwin and cut off his wings (sorry) painted his using my new cosmic shimmer paints and layered up his orange bits of his jumper and jeans. Cut of the balloon and put proper wire as the string to give some more dimension. Layered the image onto some textured card and mounted onto some travel pages which were in a DCWV text prints stack. Next I used some bright orange ribbon down the side and across the bottom, with some more paper I cut a scalloped circle and ordinary circle using my cricut accent essentials cartridge, "Just Arrived" rub on and a brad in the center of the sentiment. Lastly I had some button on a travel theme that I mounted onto the ribbon. Rounded of the corner to give some more focus onto the card. The base card itself is a pearly green. Really happy with this card and my customer was delighted with it. Just hope her son likes it when he comes home next week, he will notice a big difference in the weather.

He's just adorable & I like how the shimmers work. Also like how you've layered certain areas.
