Super Edwin!

Hello my blogging friends! Today I bring you a rare treat...something I've done just because,lol. This summer has been soo busy for me and there are so many things I wanted to do and didn't get done I'm now anxious for school to start so I can have some free time during the day to work on them. At any rate my son's birthday is next weekend  and I'm getting ready to leave town for a bit, so I thought I better get a head start on it.  I noticed a masking challenge going on over at TOMIC and decided I wanted to join in. Here's what I came up with...

I just got these two in the mail and my boys(all three of them) are all about super hero's so I new I HAD to have this Edwin.  The rocket ship was just too cool too and now I'm wishing I would've also gotten the moon...doesn't it just figure, but as you can see I made due w/o it.

So obviously since it's for a boy I couldn't girly it all out...although truth be told he probably wouldn't mind a few jems on there,lol. I figured though that glitter is still pretty universal and that would jazz it up a bit. I liked the idea of stars and then remembered I'd gotten some with some Christmas buttons I'd purchased and they matched and added some much needed dimension.

Here's a closer view of how I've colored him. I'm a huge Superman fan and wanted this to be a little more original, so I decided on mostly blue and yellow with some red accents and I love how it turned out. Sorry I don't have the colors as I was keeping them but then I got totally sidetracked with something I HAD to try today and my colors got all mixed up. 

I will show you this...

 ...almost finished inside. I have some sentiments around here that will be perfect for this, I just gotta find them.  They are actually something I got for my kids to use and I'm pretty sure I've remembered where they are at, but it's gonna take some digging so this is it for now.

Well, that's all for today, I hope you have enjoyed my Edwin. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
