Sailor Edwin

I have to say I stamp lifted this card but I don't know from whom. I kept the idea in my mind but not who did it; I'm sorry. I'm doing this for the challenge over on Magnolia Stamp Lovers here for their challenge to use Edwin. He is such a cute guy and we don't seem to use him enough. 
I also used the pelican and ship scene from this collection. The Magnolia animals are as cute as Edwin and Tilda. Everything is colored with copics. At first I did the sky in all blues and then decided it was just too blue. lol So I added some R00 and V000 to give a bit more pizzaz. The ocean has stickles and blue rhinestones in it.  The port hole has eyelets all around it. The knot is a square knot done by my Eagle Scout son because I am knot challenged. The binacular has diamond glaze on it. btw this Edwin is called binacular Edwin or Edwin with binaculars.  I would love for you to leave a comment they really add to the fun of blogging.

Love, love, love all the great little details that you've added to the already uber cute Edwin. Also good to meet up with someone who is "knot" challenged like me.
