Chasing Edwin

Poor Edwin is so neglected. I don't have many of him and don't use him as often as the Tildas. 
I colored Edwin in copics but didn't keep track of which ones. I had such a pile out I finally had to put them away so I had room to work. The butterfly and ladybug stamp is from Great Impressions. Stickles were applied to the net and the squiggles around the bugs. The dp is from Oh Baby Boy by basic grey. The green paper is from dcwv. The card is sanded around the edges. The white paper and green around Edwin is distressed. I thought a boy card really needed some distressing. I used three different copic colors around Edwin just trying to put dots down and then went over it all with the blender pen.  The grass is done by starting at the bottom and the flicking up so that there is a point at the top like grass. Then I put dots of colors in the grass for flowers. 
I made this card for a sketch challenge at Crafting Life's Pieces.
