Okay, so that's NOT the real name of that Magnolia stamp.... it's actually "Bandaid Edwin" ;)
This is another card for my hospital "Healing" art project. This time I made a Joy Fold Card (I have no idea why it is called that, but it was my first one). I wanted to create a scene that put this typical scraped-knee boy in a situation that perhaps explains his latest scars... biking in the woods.
I hand-drew the log and then struggled on how to do his bike. But then I remembered that Edwin already HAD a bike (in another stamp)! So I used that one as a model for the bike I drew leaning on the fallen log.
Edwin, the log and the bike are all coloured with Copics, natch. They are also popped up on foam dimensionals.
The paper used was K&Company Tim Coffey Fall Rust Stripe. Both the patterned paper and Bazzil cardstock were inked with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink and then while still wet, my Making Memories distressing tool was run down the edges (I had forgotten how good that thing works!) I used my sewing machine to do some stitching on three of the panels.
The brad closure was a tad small, so I found a washer to go behind it. Since they were both a pewter colour, I used Copics to colour them to match the other coppery metals on the card.
A sheer beige ribbon finished off the front of the card. I think. I may add something more to it after I ponder it a few days... it wouldn't be the first time I did this.
But here is where I need YOUR help!
I don't know what sentiment I should put inside. All I can think of is "Take care of your Boo Boo". I know. Lame.
I am certain you clever people can come up with something much better!
So please, add your suggestion in the comments! I would be forever grateful!!!!
Not only that, but if I choose yours to use in the card, I shall send you a surprise by mail...
And just to be fair, I shall also choose another commenter randomly to receive a special surprise by mail too.
So put on those thinking caps - because mine, obviously, is defective.
Here are the Copic colours used:
Skin: E000, E00
Clothes and shoes: E50, E51, E53, E55, E57, E59, W1, W3, W5
Log: E29, E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E39, E49
Bike: N0, N3, N6
Brad closure: E18, E47, W7
EDITED MONDAY, MAY 17TH 6:30 PM:
Thank you to everyone who came up with great suggestions for Edwin's sentiment! It was hard to choose, but here is what I thought would fit best with the "Healing" theme for this art exhibition:
Thank you Dawn from Creativity With Dawn and thank you for a perfect saying! As you can see, I even found a free "Bandaid" font to print it out in!
