Golfing Edwin

I know, I know there is no stamp of Edwin golfing but I don't know any women that golf but I know lots of guys who do so I decided to make Golfing Tilda into Golfing Edwin.


I took the body of golfing Tilda and cut off her head and put in soccer Edwin in its place. I used a ruler to line up where the golf club should go and drew in the middle of the golf club. (my wonderful artistic talent at work again lol) Golfers often where unique pants so I paper pieced the pants using a scrap of basic grey dp and colored them with copics. All the coloring is done with copics. The great big golf ball is from a retired set from the angel company. The golf ball is covered with diamond glaze. The image and the golf ball are popped up with foam tape. Here is a picture of the inside of the card.


The words and the golf course are also from the set from the angel company.  
Hope you all are having a tee-rific day. Stay safe if you are in Irene's path. Talked to dd #1 who is right outside of NYC and she is battening down the hatches.

Peggie! This is just so clever! I'll have to remember this idea when I can't find a head to suit the body I want to use. Your coloring is fabulous - I love this whole card! I have Gold Tilda because my sister is an avid golfer! I will let Tilda keep her head when I finally get around to using her...hugs...Barb

Fantastic card, Peggy! What a wonderful idea! He looks like he was made that way.

Elle said...

I was wondering if anyone would do that. Great job piecing Edwin into your image and your coloring is spot on. I love the golf pants! Isn't that the truth lol.

Rene said...

This is SO cool! I too bought this image with the idea of decapitating Tilda (;D) and putting Edwin in her place...I know all of two female golfers! Great job...gorgeous card!
Rene :D

This turned out so wonderfully!!! What a neat way to create "Edwin stamps" to make male cards. Looking at the card one would never know what you did. I would have gone crazy looking for Golfer Edwin!! The coloring is fabulous! The golf ball and tee are a great touch.
Huggeroonies,
