Sherwood Edwin steps up....

and is my entry into the new Mad for markers competition which is to use shades of the one colour.
Well I dont have that many copics yet (working on it ...lol) so I was a bit limited.  i havve 3 shades of pink or 3 shades of green.  Now I've done LOTS of girly cards so I thought a boyish one might be in order...so shades of green it was.
Sherwood Edwin stepped up and said...hey how about inking me up and colouring me in shades of green!  done I said!   LOL  Although i couldnt bring myself to give him green hair so a bit of brown snuck in...lol

i have also used the sketch from Friday sketches to create my card.


Copics used are
Skin E11, 00, 000 and R20
Hair E49, 31
clothes etc : YG67, 63 G21.
Shadow is Distress ink Peeled paint

Paper is by Bo Bunny and buttons from my stash
Scalloped circle stamp is a Hero Arts one.

Awesome coloring on Edwin. The button and the cheerful circles added super duper contrast of the layout design. Great work on this Leonie!!
