Birthday Boy - A new Bicyle

Hello all,  Well it's blowing a gale and bucketing down with rain here in the West of Scotland so I hope you are all having better weather than we are.

I wanted to show you a very neglected (sorry!) stamp. I love this wee chap but don't get to use him very often.  It's Magnolia's Edwin on his bicycle.   I was asked to make a card for a wee boy who is getting a new bicycle for his Birthday so I knew exactly which stamp to use.  I've also taken the colour scheme for my card from the Magnolia-licious challenge which is brown, orange and teal this fortnight. 

Edwin has been coloured with Derwent artists pencils and gamosol oils.  I'm getting a little more confident using this medium but still need a lot of practice.  Papers are Papermania & Dovecraft the full recipe for my card is below this post.

That's all from me for now my dears,  but just before I go I would like to welcome my new followers and my existing followers, your comments and enthusiasm mean such a lot to me. 

Hugs to you all xxx
