Yo Ho Hoist the Colors....



This is the first Sailor Tilda/Edwin I have coloured and I had a lot of fun with this one and for once I am actually completely happy with the result. I added the pearls around the circle to mimic the rivets of the porthole. Tilda is coloured with prismacolour pencils. I used my favourite nautical papers from CTMH and gave distressed edges. The anchor and wheel where birthday gifts from Corry, thanks so much! I printed the tag using Giddyup font. Thanks for looking today, I am entering this card at....Crazy Challenge - Happy birthday, Kaboodle Doodles - Monochromatic, Aly's Sunday Challenge - For the guys, Crafty Pad - Something for the boys, Our Daily Bread Designs - The blues, Alphabet Challenge - Just for fun, AiFactory - - for the boys.
