Now I'm not great at colouring and blending with Promarkers, but I recently got this lovely little "Ninja Edwin" Magnolia stamp and I thought he'd be a great image to practise on. And I DID need to practise - I've thrown my first two attempts at his outfit away, but eventually I settled on Cool Grey 2, 3 and 4 for the outfit, with just a hint of Cool Grey 1 for his outline and shadow and to give depth and shading to the Blush I used for his face. I die cut him out and layered him onto plain kraft with my old faithful nesties circles.
I've layered him up with corrugated kraft-and-black, some grey striped paper and a punched border, and finished with a stamped greeting and some candi. I think this would be great for a little - or not so little - boy who has martial arts lessons!
I've used up lots of old stash in this card - the corrugated kraft has been hanging round for ages waiting for the right project and the candi is from the very first pack of it I ever bought. (Do you know it breeds? I'm pretty sure several of my packs have mated and produced offspring in colours I'm sure I never bought).
So I'm sharing this with Use Your Stash at Tilda's Town Challenges - my first visit to this challenge.
