Superman Edwin

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good weekend. A card to share today using Superman Edwin, I think he's   great and perfect for many of the 'male' occasions we have to make for :)! I've coloured him in Superman colours with distress and watercolour markers and edged the panel after cutting out with an oblong nestability in distress ink and star dust stickles.

The image is matted onto white card which is corner punched and edged with barn door DI then stickles. There's a little panel under the image which is stamped with an x peg stamp and under that the background is embossed with a Tim Holtz clock face folder and sponged with various distress inks. I added the gorgeous little tea labels shapes dies (my current favourites!) stamped with the peg stamps and various DI colours. To finish I've added bakers twine a button and some pearl pen pearls.

I'm entering my card into the challenges at
Midweek Magnolia's where the challenge is 'anything goes'
It's a Magnolia Challenge - where the challengs is 'process a clock on your creation and use a Tilda or Edwin', I have a clock embossed background.
