A Second Son a Second Edwin Birthday Card!!

Hi everyone! I bet you are all looking forward to a wonderful weekend ahead!! Sure hope it is great...........
I am going on a trip to visit our youngest son and I leave on Sunday January 24th and will return on February 3rd. So this is my last post until then.
Ryan has a Birthday on the day I am arriving at his house! Our two boys are only 5 days apart in January LOL { and that is only a small portion of our family January Birthdays :o)}
Ryan is a masterful guitar player who writes his own music and sings as well. I was SO happy when I found Guitar Edwin #137 at Diana's store. I also received the 'Window Curtain' # 547 from Diana the other day and wanted to use it too. AND I also used the 'Spring Tree'- it is from the 2009 Easter Collection.

For this card I used my new Air Gun ( from Diana ) for the first time and didn't have a clue how to use it! But I tried and managed a sky for the outside. The tree is stamped and coloured with Copics. I stamped and cut out the window pains then coloured the frame and the curtains. Then I stamped the curtains onto a DP and cut them out shaped them and pop dotted them on top of the original curtains.

Edwin was then coloured with Copics, cut out and place on deeper pop dots so he sits in front of the window.

I used SU card stock: Craft and Pumpkin Pie and two unknown and very old Design papers. For the left inside I ran the Pumpkin through the Music embossing folder and for the right side I just stamped the sentiment onto the Design paper.


So HAPPY BIRTHDAY Ryan - see you in a couple of days :o)
And see the rest of you when I return - bye bye for now ~ Candy

YOU BOUGHT AN AIR GUN?!! COOL!! I am kind of freaked out about owning one cuz I can see me going through ink like crazy. I'm sure I'd be airbrushing everything! LOL!! Thanks for showing us the window stamp. I marked it down for my next purchase. It looks good with that tree (which I happen to have already - yay!) What a great card! Enjoy your visit!

OK I got an error when I left the first comment :( As I was saying...this Edwin is adorable...love the little scene with the window...& you are a master with the air gun! Congrats on buying one!!

Hi, Candy!
You asked me a couple of questions on my blog, and this is the only way I could find to contact you. There is a tutorial http://papercookies.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2009/06/01/puppy-preview-and-a-nesties-tutorial/ for the technique you asked about. As for the colors I used on the birds, unfortunately, I never keep track of the Copics I use. When I'm finished coloring an image I usually have a couple of dozen markers scattered about!

Elaine L. said...

Oh! I forgot to mention that I enjoyed poking around on your blog! Lots of wonderful work!

Pam said...

Candy, I love your card! I love how you used the window in your scene. A lot of work went into this beauty.
Hope this comment finds you well.
Hugs,
Pam
