Sailor Edwin ...

Today I have one of the lovely Magnolia stamps, sailor Edwin. Thought I would make a port hole complete with brads and some acetate. It is not a shaker card but I have put some liquid embossing on the inside to represent splashes of water! Edwin has also been decoupaged so that there is more definition of him hanging off the anchor. Backing paper was from my stash and the sentiment was from TLC. I have used netting again along with some Magnolia shell stamps. The starfish is a stamp from Panduro, I think it came as part of a set many moons ago. You won't be able to see very well but I have also included some pearls in with the netting & the shells. Coloured using the wonderful Promarkers as always.
Thanks for looking, please don't be shy and leave a message. Enjoy the rest of this glorious bank holiday weather & I hope to be back later this week with some more creations.
Take care, happy crafting, Jane x
